ERGs (Employee Resource Groups)

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Other benefits include the development of future leaders, increased employee engagement, and expanded marketplace reach. Learn more about the Catalyst Employee Resource Leadership Initiative (ERLI), which engages and connects ERG leaders—for any demographic—across companies, industries, and regions and check out The Catalyst Guide to ERGs to start or grow your ERG.
