Women's employee resource group

What does it take to get one off the ground successfully? I am thinking of starting one at my company and would love to hear from others about how to encourage as many women at my workplace to join and how to make them engaging and interesting for members. Any ideas for events and programming would be much appreciated!

    Our company is currently developing framework for introducing ERN’s at our company. Starting with HR is a great place to begin to ensure you have support, parameters and mutual understanding of how the ERN will run. If you haven’t already, look for a local chapter of LeanIn and leverage their materials to help inspire your approach and run the first few meetings to get you started. I’d also suggest finding a strong, and inspiring female executive sponsor of the ERN. Good luck!

I'm at a relatively senior level in my career, and I'm getting married. I'd like to change my name...but I'm concerned about how it could affect my "brand." First of all, people inside my company and out already know me by my maiden name...But also, will it affect my career prospects and make it seem like I am too focused on marriage?

Hi All, I am a Ph.D. student in management and currently studying leader-member relationship at workplace. I am curious about whether there exists tensional experience in your interactions with the supervisor or subordinate with whom you generally have a good relation. Have you ever experienced a situation or circumstance where you felt conflicted, pressure, or that caused tensions with your relationship with supervisor/subordinate? If you want, you can share with me what happened, why you felt that way, how you dealt with this situation, and how this event influenced this relationship. Thanks!

I have a coworker who plays this psychological warfare on me. How do I deal with her nasty attitude, and manipulating disposition?

One of my friends at work started a little contest at work where they were trying to guess my baby's future name but I haven't even told them whether I'm having a boy or a girl? They keep asking and it really annoys me because I am a pretty private person and I haven't even decided whether to find out the sex ourselves! Any advice on what to do?
