October 25, 2016
As part of celebrations for National Coming Out Day and LGBT History month, Plexus hosted an educational event on October 13th called “Building LGBT Employee Resource Groups”. The session, designed for ERG leaders and executive sponsors, focused on best practices, case studies and lessons learned from local corporations.  GE, Goodyear, Progressive and Westfield Insurance presented tactical and strategic snapshots of their LGBT ERG programs. This informative session highlighted how LGBT ERGs can be developed and thrive in a variety of environments and despite many challenges. The examples showcased the power of working collaboratively to make a significant impact for LGBT and Ally employees. Attended by over 25 organizations, the event received rave reviews—connecting leaders from companies with ERGs and those who may want to start ERGs.
