The Why? Williams-Fauntroy’s commitment to making Warner Bros. Discovery a better place to work translates through her work with MOSAIC, a company-wide DEI effort. A member of the Black Cultural Alliance, a chapter of the Multicultural Alliance ERG, she leads conversations within the company about the experiences people of color face daily and the importance of creating opportunities for people of color to have a seat at the table.
She Says… “Employee resource groups are successful when they educate and inspire their members and the entire company, as well as when they contribute to moving the company’s businesses forward through the lens of the ERG’s unique goals and missions.”
What makes for a successful Employee Resource Group: Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), are successful when they educate and inspire their members and the entire company, as well as when they contribute to moving the company’s businesses forward through the lens of the ERG’s unique goals and missions. A successful ERG provides valuable community connections based on shared cultures and interests and ultimately, through these connections, employees find a higher level of engagement with the larger company. I have been honored to lead and participate in Warner Bros. Discovery’s ERG efforts in the past and appreciate the value they bring to the company.
Organization I’m proud to support: I am proud to support the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, which is a public arts school in Washington, DC. The school teaches and supports high schoolers with amazing talent in music, dance, theater and other performing arts all while giving them a great education. As a patron of the arts and as someone who believes in supporting the academic pursuits of young students, I often support the school’s efforts, including previously sitting on the school’s fundraising board.
