Employee Resource Groups

Did you know…? Employee Resource Groups are a great way to foster diversity and inclusion.

The University Staff Advisory Committee (USAC) and Office of Human Resources (OHR) are looking for Employee Resource Groups or Employee Networking Groups that operate on campus. Not familiar with this term? Employee resource groups (also known as ERGs, affinity groups, or business network groups) are groups of employees who join together in their workplace or university based on shared characteristics or life experiences. ERGs are generally based on providing support, enhancing career development, and contributing to personal development in the work environment.

If you currently lead or are a member of an ERG, we would like to connect with you! Please complete the brief survey and we will reach out in the near future to learn more.

If you have questions, concerns, or feedback regarding ERGs or this survey, please contact Nina Brooks (Brooks.1004@osu.edu), OHR – Diversity and Inclusion – Learning & Development Consultant, or call her office at 614-292-8368. You may also contact USAC at usac@osu.edu.
