Episode 11: Inside ERGs

We’ve talked about the blueprint of the ERG on the show before, but in this episode, we are going to show you the inner workings of one of SRP’s Employee Resource Group. SRP Manager of Diversity & Inclusion Essen Otu will share how SRP measures the success of these programs.

We will also speak with Michelle Bigman. She’s a member of the “Native Americans Together- In Vision & Empowerment” (N.A.T.I.V.E) ERG at SRP. She’s going to share her experience with the group.

Our third guest is Ryan McManis. He is VP & Deputy General Counsel for Lumen Technologies. He will talk about increasing accountability among organizations when it comes to diversity and inclusion.

There are many proactive changes in play within the diversity & inclusion space. There is importance and benefits to creating a place that helps create career paths for minorities.
