Dating back to the 1960s, “Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups whose aim is to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the organizations they serve.”
Often, their main purpose is to improve working conditions for underrepresented employees, create safe working environments, and foster a sense of community. Serving their mission, ERGs often partner with executive sponsors to create helpful and reasonable company and public policies that support the needs of business stakeholders. With as many as 90% of Fortune 500 companies having Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), ERGs are great communities to spur meaningful change.
In this guide, you’ll learn how ERGs can partner with corporate leaders to influence internal change as well as engage in corporate advocacy to support public policy that can dramatically impact the economic well-being and fair treatment of all women.
