Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are groups of employees that form with a common bond, a shared characteristic or life experience. They provide support, help with career or personal development, and work to address issues inside and outside of the workplace. Who can be involved? ANYONE! All ERG’s are open to everyone whether you are learner, supporter, or ally. The Gateway Region YMCA currently has 3 ERGs: Women's ERG, Multicultural ERG and LGBTQ+ ERG.
