November 17 is International Employee Resource Group (ERG) Day. Starting out as race-based forums in the 1960s, ERGs have now become key players in not only promoting diversity and inclusion in their workplaces, but also in contributing to the overall structure and strategy of the businesses they support. In addition to promoting inclusion and employee engagement, ERGs now provide support in areas such as talent acquisition, onboarding processes, and overall company policy.
Because of their ever-increasing influence in the spaces they represent, it’s vital that ERGs are well-equipped to navigate their roles in order to achieve the most impact. Rework Work offers a myriad of tools and resources that can help ERGs address workplace discrimination while also empowering them to take a bold stance against exclusionary practices.
If your ERG is looking for lasting transformation in your workplace, we recommend Unconscious Inclusion: The Work Beyond the Workshop. Where typical DEI workshops provide theories with no real call-to-action, our Unconscious Inclusion program goes beyond theory to provide real-life application strategies in areas like:
- Unconscious Bias
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
- Uncomfortable Conversations
- Active Listening & Communication Skills
- Psychological Safety
- Team Morale and Collaboration
- Employee Engagement
By investing in the professional development of ERGs, companies are fostering stronger interpersonal skills, which directly correlate with financial performance. They’re also benefiting from the creativity and innovation that results from diversity of thought and inclusive workgroups. Unconscious Inclusion: The Work Beyond the Workshop is unlike any workshop you’ve experienced because it isn’t just about awareness, but about action, evolution, and sustainable change.
