LET'S CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL ERG DAY

November 17, 2021

11:00 AM - 3:30 PM ET

Mogul is proud to announce the founding of International ERG Day, occurring on November 17th annually.
November 17
For over 30 years, Employee Resource Groups, Diversity Councils, Business Networking, and Affinity Groups have helped a diverse range of people within a corporation find a community comprised of like-minded individuals pursuing similar goals. Aligned with their company's mission, ERGs focus on the values that foster diversity and inclusion by providing support, career growth opportunities, and contributing to personal and professional development in the workplace.
Join us Tuesday, November 17th, from 11 AM - 3:30 PM ET, in celebration of ERGs nationwide.
We will be welcoming ERGs from across the Fortune 1,000, Big 3 Consulting Firms, and Top-Tier Growth Stage Startups for a day of inspiration, insights, collaboration, and community.

Did you know the first employee resource group was actually created in the 1960s by former Xerox CEO, Joseph Wilson? These essential groups were actually called ‘Workplace Affinity Groups’ and were built in response to the race riots in 1964. Since then, ERGs have evolved tremendously and play an even greater role in pushing company culture, inclusivity and innovation forward.
This session will discuss the value of ERGs in the rapidly-changing future of work, how ERGs have evolved over the years, and what ERGs will look like in the years to come.
