ERG’s remain a valuable resource inside companies. Yet, are organizations fully utilizing these networks? This session focuses on the value that ERGs bring to an organization, and shows examples of how they might serve as a platform for developing internal talent, providing insights on sensitive DE&I matters, recommending ambassadors for the company brand(s), and identifying new resources for outreach and recruitment. ERGs can also be a showcase for the network’s leadership’s talent and skills, and an outlet to develop their authentic leadership in a supportive environment.
