Creating New Connections at Ross

Ross has six Employee Resource Groups looking for new members. The purpose of an ERG is to create a community of support and belonging for faculty and staff with minoritized identities. ERGs unite individuals across the school with shared experiences to network and fellowship with one another. 

“They are important for people to feel more of a sense of community and to get to know others who may have similar backgrounds, interests, and even challenges,” said Lauren Clarkson, director of academic success, Office of Undergraduate Programs.

“ERGs cultivate a sense of belonging and provide psychologically-safe spaces critical to our individual and collective well-being,” said Melissa Cox, director of decision support & annual giving, Office of Advancement. 

ERGs hold meetings with their members and plan special events, such as social outings and community service projects. 

If you’re interested in connecting with people outside of your area with common interests and who want to encourage a more inclusive and equitable Ross culture, an ERG may be for you.
