September 19 - September 23

What’s the Global ERG Summit?

In today’s business environment—disrupted by continuous change and the upheaval brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic—leaders must be agile enough to meet current business challenges, and yet provide a stable and secure working environment for their members.

Join Us! Learn how your Employee Resource Groups can continue to enhance your company’s strategy, performance, culture, and return on investment (ROI).
