Being, Becoming, Belonging.
Thursday, August 22
How do you break free from convention and become a fearless leader? Employee Resource Group (ERG) and Business Resource Group (BRG) leaders tasked to test unchartered territory, often with no roadmap. Relying on their passion and vision, ERG leaders become unconventional leaders and disruptors to push the boundaries of what it means to lead.
This year’s ERG theme Being, Becoming, Belonging encapsulates the process of personal & professional growth: You must first accept your own BEING to then shift/develop into BECOMING the leader who can inspire others to achieve a sense of BELONGING in the workplace.
The ERG Summit on Thursday August 22, 2019 showcases best practices across industries, examining the impact of these programs on individual ERG leaders and the organizations as a whole.
