Employee resource groups, or ERGs, are a significant asset to organizations and their people, but many ERGs are underutilized due to a lack of understanding about their function and promise. In this course, Daisy Lovelace gives a comprehensive overview of ERGs for participants, allies, and employee volunteers. Daisy starts with the basics of what ERGs are, considers some of their challenges, and discusses ways to be involved as a member and an ally. She shows how ERGs bring together people of both similar and different backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences, and how their collaboration can benefit an organization at the company and individual levels. Daisy explains ways to participate in ERGs that add value to the group and effective ways to take advantage of the benefits. Lastly, she provides guidance to those leading ERGs with best practices to ensure success, including gaining sponsorship, visibility, and support, and motivating volunteers to serve the group’s goals.
