What Can We Do To Make Women's Groups More Effective?
Fairygodboss hosted its first-ever summit on Nov. 1-2, 2017, in an effort to further its mission to improve the workplace for women. Called "Galvanize: Making Women's Resource Groups Powerful," the event saw top leaders from a variety of industries and Fortune 500 companies assemble in NYC to further discuss how employers and women's resource groups can best support female talent.
The summit, which was sponsored by The New York Times, Accenture and IBM, focused on women's networks in particular because they are ubiquitous: employee resource groups(ERGs) exist at 90% of Fortune 500 companies. However, research conducted in 2017 by Fairygodboss suggests that ERGs have much room to be made more effective and impactful.
Approximately 100 business leaders representing corporate women's groups from over 50 major US corporations attended Galvanize 2017 to identify actionable ideas to make ERGs more effective and relevant and address the most urgent issues that working women face today.
