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. This year we are taking on the challenge to make workplaces a better place for employees, customers, leaders, and community members. We do that by learning from each other. 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.
You will have global 24/7 access throughout the week to see who is online or view recorded sessions (we encourage you to network regardless of time zone).
The Networking Lounge is available and active 24/7.
Check out what our sponsors are doing to improve ERG impact and experience.
