What you will learn:
Employee Resource Groups! You have probably heard these groups referred to in a number of ways including: affinity groups, community resource groups, or maybe just ERGs for short. But what are ERG’s really? Why do you need them at your company and what do they do? How do I get started launching them?
In this course Dayna will use her experience as a Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging leader to unpack the who, what, when, where, and why of ERGs and provide a step-by-step guide to standing them up at your company or organization. Dayna will also show you how to gain support for building these communities, how to amplify heritage months and cultural observances through your ERGs, and much more. Whether your organization has an already established DEI game plan, or if inclusion efforts are in their early stages - creating a culture of Belonging through ERGs is a guaranteed way to take inclusion to the next level. Register for this Elective and get started!
