Overview - Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) Session

In collaboration with DRR (Dr. Robert Rodriguez) Partners, HITEC will offer one 90 minute workshop at each of the our 2017 Summits.
Our goal with this series is to support and help HITEC Corporate Sponsors and their ERG leadership more effectively guide and
manage their employee resource groups. Topics that will be discussed for the remaining two 2017 HITEC Leadership Summits are as follows:


ERGs as Talent Engines - HITEC D.C. Leadership Summit, August 24-25, 2017:
As ERGs grow and become more sophisticated, their demand for strong ERG leadership grows. But ERGs don’t just need strong leaders at
the top; they need leaders throughout the ERN. The result is a requirement that a greater number of ERG members must be capable of leading.
This 90-minute session focuses on the strategy used by top ERGs to groom leaders and develop talent.

  • Review the commitment required from existing ERG leaders regarding their ability to develop future leaders.
  • Discuss strategies to top grade ERG leadership roles so they serve as a magnet for “A” players.
  • Identify the best approach to tier ERG professional development to groom leaders at every career level.
  • Develop an approach to align ERG roles with talent management initiatives.


The 4C Model Approach to Strategic ERG Initiatives - HITEC Silicon Valley Leadership Summit November 2-3, 2017:
Today’s ERGs are being asked to make an impact in a greater variety of ways. To avoid being seen as the “Food, Flag and Fun” folks, ERGs
are embracing the 4C Model as a strategic approach to making a holistic and well-rounded impact on their organization. This 90-minute
session will help attendees understand the powerful impact of the 4C Model, which explores Career, Commerce, Community and
Culture initiatives.

  • Review Career programs that elevate the career impact of ERGs on members and leaders.
  • Avoid becoming an “Under Utilized Business Asset” by formalizing Commerce & business initiatives.
  • Learn how to leverage ERGs to elevate the Cultural competence within the organization.
  • Discuss how ERGs strategies can enhance an organization’s Community outreach efforts.
