We asked folks across the industry what effort from the last 12 months from their Employee Resource Groups continues to stick with them. Here’s what they had to say.
Chief Transformation and People Officer
“What moved me is a panel our LGBTQIA+ and Parent/Caregiver ERGs hosted this month. It was an incredibly powerful discussion between our employees, talent from our shows, and a facilitator from the Ackerman Institute for the Family. Personal stories were shared, discussion around creating a supportive environment for loved ones – it was truly a celebration of having pride in families of all kinds.“
EVP/Chief Diversity Officer
“Our ERG members have always been our most engaged audience, but over the past year, we’ve seen a real transformation in how the ERGs are driving the conversation around DE&I companywide – and as advocates writ large, beyond just for their own ERG populations.“
Vice President, Talent Acquisition & Diversity
“Our ERGs kept meeting the moment as the safe spaces our employees needed, at the time they needed them. In particular, our Open Minds ERG became an intersectional group across all ERGS, connecting employees across identities through a pandemic and supporting responses to the challenging
moments faced this year.
