Today, employee resource groups (ERGs) can be found in many FP500 and F500 companies and are important engines of employee engagement and business results. In fact, over 80% of Catalyst member organizations surveyed had at least one employee resource group. ERGs can have considerable impact on an organization’s ability to develop future leaders, increase employee engagement, and expand marketplace reach.

ERGs also represent an opportunity to build cultural competence around inclusive leadership, which in turn allows companies to learn from and include diverse groups at work. Join this webinar to learn how Catalyst’s new Employee Resource Leadership Initiative (ERLI) will help engage and connect ERG leaders across companies—and train these emerging leaders to drive inclusion more effectively in their everyday roles.

Hi Dalila,

Thank you for your question! We would be happy to support the Families at Work ERG. I would recommend you look at The Catalyst Guide to Employee Resource Groups, particularly Tool 6. It includes great information on increasing and sustaining membership. See a link below. We also hope you will attend the webinar later this month to hear more about how the Employee Resource Leadership Initiative (ERLI) can connect you with advice and other company approaches.

Hi Pam: You'll have to copy and paste the URL to your browser. Also, this toolkit is restricted to employees of Catalyst members only, so make sure to register on the site (see upper right corner) with your work email address (if your employer is a Catalyst member) before you attempt to download the tool. -- Joy Ohm, Editor-in-Chief, Catalyst
