What is an Employee Resource Group (ERG) you ask? ERGs are groups of employees who join together based on shared characteristics or life experiences to provide fellowship, friendship and support, enhance career and personal development and contribute to the organization’s vision and values. ERGs promote diversity and equality by raising awareness and ensuring that group members have a voice in the organization.
At Berkeley Lab, our ERGs also allow employees to participate directly with our ongoing IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, accountability) initiatives and assist in fully integrating IDEA into the Lab’s day-to-day business practices through events, strategic initiatives and policy-related goals.
Membership: Membership is open to all Lab employees.
Be an Ally: Don’t necessarily identify with the group’s characteristics, but still want to be involved? No problem! You can join to show your support and participate by being an ally.
What does being an ally mean? It means becoming a member, getting to know people, asking about their experiences, being curious and open minded, learning about the issues that are important to the group, showing up, engaging, participating and last, but not least, speaking up and helping amplify the groups concerns.
