What’s the ERG International Symposium?

Fall 2022 will mark ELA's 4th event bringing together ERG champions from all-sized companies, academia and non-profits based all over the world. 

Join fellow diversity champions as they share and co-create best practices that are actively building stronger, more sustainable employee groups. 

LIVE! In Person or Virtual Do Over?

You choose! We know these days not everyone can or wants to attend an in-person event. However, rather than do another hybrid event, we want to give you the opportunity to join others onsite or virtually so everyone has the same, optimized user experience.

Who attends the ERG Symposium?

  • Leaders of individual employee groups
  • Program managers who oversee multiple ERGs
  • Executive sponsors and allies working with ERGs
  • Other members of the HR and DE&I community who are involved in diversity and inclusion efforts–including, but not limited to employee resource group initiatives

Program Highlights

  • Morning and afternoon workshops aligned to support your leadership needs - including a dedicated track for Program Managers
  • Uniquely interactive sessions and facilitated networking with top ERG doers and thinkers
  • Hear the latest ERG trends, case studies and real-world solutions that help you and your team work most effectively and efficiently
  • Optional pre-event ERG Leader Bootcamps for each stage of ERG growth (1/2 day live onsite; additional cost applies); ERG leaders walk away with clear ideas of what work they need to do and how to get it done.

Feedback from past events

Martina Hranova 

Inclusion and Diversity Champion at NortonLifeLock

"It was amazing! Thank you! I have to say I was skeptical - some of these forums are nice to have, but you don’t walk away with much more than an uplifting feeling that lasts one day. I loved the participants and the takeaways!"

Marinda Monfilston

Diversity Program Coordinator at Yale University

"As someone that attended this event in person the last time it was offered, I still walked away feeling inspired and revitalized virtually. This was my first hybrid conference and it was absolutely amazing, and engaging. And I’m so thankful for our leaders having an opportunity to have this experience as well, to be reminded about the important work we are doing, and that they are not alone."

Ninh Nguyen

DEI Program Manager at Foursquare

"I learned so much in how to engage executive sponsors, and I’m super excited about implementing some of the things I learned today into our ERG programming for 2022. You and your team were able to secure a great lineup of speakers."
