The earliest kind of BRGs, Business Resource Groups, were professional organizations like the American Bankers Association, the American Medical Association, the American Chemical Society, and so on.
Members had shared cultural characteristics and experiences. They came together seeking support, to talk about their careers and lives – their ambitions and challenges – to keep each other current on developments in their field or industry, to share career strategies, and pass on information about employment and professional development opportunities.
Today, BRGS or ERGs – Employee Resource Groups – are also being formed around shared interests such as environmental advocacy, work-life balance, community service and other topics that align with the company’s inclusion strategy. Join the fun and learning as you meet with like-minded people and build healthy workplace relationships.
