What To Expect

This year’s Roundtables will explore how Employee and Business Resource Groups (ERGs and BRGs) can serve as platforms for open dialogue, provide professional development opportunities and ultimately support your strategic business goals.

ERG and BRG leaders from companies across the industry will share insights on how they establish, sustain and foster these groups, including defining their roles within the organization, addressing challenges and opportunities for growth, and measuring their impact on engagement and retention.

Through practical strategies, real-world tactics and actionable steps, learn how ERGs and BRGs can implement positive change in your business.
