Employee Resource Groups

Join Emory's Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to connect with your colleagues and coworkers and make a difference in enhancing our community.

About ERGs

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups established around common interests, purpose, and/or characteristics, typically underrepresented identities and their allies. These groups provide opportunities for:

  • networking and social connection;
  • enhancing community, engagement and inclusion; and
  • giving voice to marginalized or underrepresented communities.

Emory University is piloting two ERGs in 2022, the Emory Black Employee Network and the Emory Pride Employee Network. The two ERGs were chosen to be the first to be piloted based on the results of a survey that was conducted. If the pilot ERGs prove successful, there are plans to launch ERGs for other groups in the future.

Emory Black Employee Network

The Emory Black Employee Network (EBEN) aims to provide support and build a community for black employees and their allies.

This group promotes individual and collective growth through various resources and networking opportunities, focusing on areas such as health and wellness, community service, cultural events, social gatherings, engagement, mentorship, and personal and professional development opportunities.

Emory Pride Employee Network

The Emory Pride Employee Network (EPEN) strives to celebrate, support, and recognize the diverse community of LGBTQ+ employees at Emory University by providing resources for educational growth, awareness and advocacy, and social connections. The EPEN envisions becoming a leader in addressing inequities and advocating for its LGBTQ+ community’s diverse needs.  This group is open to all Emory LGBTQ+ employees and all allies.
