What Black Employee Resource Groups Need Right Now
This article from Aiko Bethea explains how supporting Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) can provide representation, belonging, and safety for underrepresented and marginalised workers and strengthen your organisation. It spells out how Black ERGs - in an era of escalating racial tensions - having a growing need for equity and resources; transparency trust; mental health support; and formal validation from leadership. This is a good introductory piece for HR representatives and change agents who want to make a case for improving representation that includes tangible actions.
Although the emphasis of this article is on Black employees in North America, the lessons are similarly applicable to other historically disadvantaged and oppressed groups.
