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 currently has five ERGs:

Emory Black Employee Network

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.
