Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) logo

Employee resource groups (ERGs) have been flourishing in the last year as companies explore strategies to strengthen their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Like all new ventures, the journey to create ERGs that have a positive impact on your employees and firm as a whole requires thoughtfulness, commitment, collaboration, time, and patience. If you and your firm are thinking about establishing ERGs, you don’t want to miss this panel. The speakers will discuss how they got started, their approach, and what they’ve learned along the way, as well as their ways to set them up for success and pitfalls to avoid. Discussion topics will include:

  • How to establish, facilitate and maintain ERGs
  • How ERGs can increase and improve employees’ experience and feelings of inclusion
  • How including ERG materials in an onboarding “welcome kit” can help with retention
  • How to form ERGs in a small firm or take advantage of firm network ERGs
