Below are the first two paragraphs from Yalonda’s blog:

“As companies redefine their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strategies to better meet the needs of workers and other stakeholders, many have begun reexamining the roles of their employee resource groups (ERGs), which are internal communities of workers with shared identities and interests.

Employee Resource Group (ERG) programs create an open forum for employees who share a common identity to meet and support one another in building their community and sense of belonging. ERG programs empower these groups by offering them financial support, organizational support and access to decision-makers” (Yalonda Brown, 2023).
