Every year, hundreds of ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils vie to land a spot on the Association of ERGs & Councils’ Honors Award Top 25 list, the only annual national award that recognizes, honors, and celebrates the outstanding contributions and achievements of Employee Resource Groups and Diversity Councils. We have gathered three of the best to share their diverse journeys to achieving success and business impact within their organizations.

Hear from the members of the Top 25, including The Coca-Cola Asian Business Resource Group as they share how they leverage diversity as a business driver to achieve profits; learn how Texas Instruments has used their faith-based ERGs as a competitive advantage; and U.S. Bank shares cutting-edge processes for virtual resource groups’ support and engagement.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will network and gain best practices from nationally recognized top ERGs.
  • Participants will learn three different case studies to use and share within their organizations.
  • Participants will take away step-by-step plans to implement innovative initiatives to add value and impact to their groups.
