2021 Virtual ERG Leadership Summit: Accelerating Transformation

The Center for Effective Organizations is excited to host the ninth annual ERG Leadership Summit, offered in partnership with the Association of ERGs & Councils.

Join us, and learn from the challenges of our recent history. Learn from each other in order to drive real and positive change. We are focused on humanizing our daily experiences through our ERG work.
