How to Build an #Impactful Employee Resource Group
Studies have shown that companies which are more diverse, perform better. They are more innovative, more profitable, and create products which are truly representative of the people that use them. How do we empower employees to be a part of these decisions? By creating employee resource groups, or ERGs, that foster diverse workplaces. ERGs drive career development, employee satisfaction, and company productivity. Join Shiloh Gulickson, Twitter's Global Head of @TwitterWomen, and Virginia Miracle, Spredfast's CCO and champion of the women’s leadership group, to hear how companies are empowering female AND male employees to build ERGs and how to spearhead the movement at your organization.
