Workshop Overview

This workshop will help you develop and maintain successful Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that effectively improve gender equity in the workplace.

Key takeaways from this workshop include:

● Understanding & communicating the value of advocacy and support groups

● How to develop an engaging group structure that can be maintained long-term
