Employee Resource Groups

An Employee Resource Group (ERG) is a group of employees, from various employment groups, that assists the college in creating an environment and culture that is welcoming and supportive of all employees, particularly those individuals who are members of historically under-represented populations.

ERGs are supported by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Harper College as a means of improving the recruitment and retention of employees from under-represented populations. Organizations in higher education and the private sector have a long history of partnering with ERGs as a way to build community and to improve recruitment and retention of diverse talent.
