In witnessing the surprising discrepancies and challenges to run an effective employee network across companies, the ERG Leadership Alliance (ELA) was created to enable D&I professionals and ERG leaders to support one another and share best practices across organizations.

Our goals are to help ERG volunteer leaders to:

  • Easily access helpful resources to set up and enrich ERGs

  • More effectively obtain internal sponsorship & funding

  • Increase group membership & member engagement

  • Utilize comparative performance metrics and ROI measurements

  • Transfer momentum and knowledge between leaders within and across companies

  • Provide support through helpful connections and vetted vendor recommendations
