Employee Resource Groups

"I have long believed that Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and the leaders that drive them are the “culture creators” for companies. People that are passionate about driving change, passionate about their company and making us better, driving inclusivity, driving for voices to be heard, and driving for fairness and equality. I want to personally thank all of our ERG leaders and committee members for what they do"
