CONNECT was designed to embrace and advance inclusion across the region by leveraging cross-company employee resource groups to attract, grow and retain diverse talent enabling sustainable economic growth for Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
- Connect – Link cross-company employee resource groups to enhance inclusion, professional development, community service, and social and cultural connections.
- Collaborate – Engage diverse talent across organizations to share best practices, develop initiatives that foster inclusion and capitalize on the power of diversity for the region.
- Communicate – Promote the region’s vast personal and professional opportunities and high quality of life while communicating the importance of diversity and inclusion to our long term prosperity.
Companies have long realized the power of affinity networks to help their employees navigate culture, offer networking, professional and personal development opportunities, and to ultimately attract and retain employees.
This toolkit is a product of the collective knowledge from some of Cincinnati’s top employers. In it you will find resources to help you launch, activate, manage and grow Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) in your organization. You are welcome to create your own binder by downloading, customizing and using any of the information and templates included in this toolkit.
