Get your pen and paper ready because I’m going to explain why employee resource groups directly address the three biggest problems that organisations experience when they try to become more inclusive.
I call these problems the 3 P’s: People, Potential and Performance and if you don’t address each and every one of these problems, then the science says it’s not possible to have an inclusive organisation.
Here’s some of what I share in the show:
Organisations find it difficult to engage with people that are currently being excluded
"Employee resource groups directly engage employees that are underrepresented and excluded. These are the people at the Bottom of the pyramid who are being ignored”
Organisations find it difficult to create a culture of inclusion
"Employee resource groups can help to change the narrative of what it means to be a successful employee within an organisation and this is one of many things that helps to change the culture”
Organisations find it difficult to articulate a compelling business case for diversity
"Employee Resource Groups can MAKE you millions and they can SAVE you millions"
