Reminder: Working Parent & Guardian Employee Resource Group

Staff Council is establishing a Working Parent & Guardian Employee Resource Group (ERG). Please join colleagues for $5 lunch on Friday, November 30, from noon-1 p.m. in the Schott Dining Hall. The ERG will cover the cost of $5 lunch. If you wish to come to lunch, please R.S.V.P. at

Employee Resource Groups (also sometimes called “affinity groups” or “employee communities”) are voluntary groups sponsored by an employer and organized around specific socio-cultural identities. Many companies and institutions have ERG’s for their staff members. ERG’s provide an opportunity for employees to build social connections, give and receive mentorship, increase professional and leadership development, and to engage in networking and self-advocacy. They also provide an opportunity for employers to engage in a focused way with employees in particular identity groups. ERG’s typically hold meetings, sponsor events, and provide a safe space to discuss issues unique to particular communities.

If you have any queries, concerns, or require accommodation, please contact Brendan Dolan (Office of Residence Life) at
