Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

The Wellesley College Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that are supported by the College to provide our employees with professional and social networks.  These networks connect colleagues across the Wellesley community in a supportive and inclusive environment.

The goal and purpose of the ERGs is to cultivate community connectedness and create a stronger and more diverse community. These groups create spaces for employees who either identify with these groups or wish to be an ally.

Goals of ERGs:

  • Align with the College’s mission of inclusive excellence
  • Create inclusive and supportive spaces for employees to develop and grow 
  • Grow networks to connect employees across campus
  • Strengthen open communication and foster new ideas

To join an ERG or for more information about a specific group, please contact the co-chairs of the ERG.
