Employee Resource Groups
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are an opportunity for SPSCC employees to gather and connect around issues that define them personally, and which affect their work at the College and their professional development.
All ERGs are open to all employees and participation is completely voluntary.
ERGs support professional and personal development, contribute to the College’s social equity work, and build and strengthen employee networks.
ERGs are created and run by College employees and can be formed around common interests, bonds, or backgrounds. Some examples could be characteristics like national origin, gender, sexual orientation, working parents, veteran status, living with chronic illness, professional or academic interests, or caring for aging family members.
Employees can use work time, equipment, and space for ERG-related activities. ERGs are also able to support their group activities.
There is no right or wrong way to form or lead an ERG.
Washington’s State Human Resources office has a page for Statewide Business Resource Groups which shares charters and other materials from similar groups that have been created statewide.
