Building Effective Employee Resource Groups

They can promote diversity, equity and inclusion, and a sense of belonging by providing a safe space for people from marginalized communities to come together with like-minded individuals. If your organization doesn’t have ERGs, it’s a good idea to start thinking about building some now.
