ERG and BRG Leader Development Program

Invest in the Leadership Skills of your ERG and BRG Leaders

What role do Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and Business Resource Groups (BRGs) have within your organization? We believe ERGs and BRGs are invaluable to driving change and growth within organizations! Skidmore Consulting developed a Leadership Training Program for business leaders serving on an ERG/BRG committee or board. Through our ERG and BRG Program, we focus on developing the leadership skills of committee leaders and board members. And, best of all – we offer hybrid online programs! Participants experience live, virtual instructor-led sessions as well as independent online work.

Learning Outcomes and Behaviors OF THE PROGRAM

The program includes live feedback and real-time interactions with a Leadership Doctor. Dr. Sarah designed this program with ERG and BRG leaders in mind. Our learning experience allows participants to interact with a leadership expert for real-time feedback, prompting, and engagement.

  • Embrace inclusive leadership for organizational success
  • Unlock leadership skills to transform cultures and organizations
  • Develop ERG and BRG Leaders who foster corporate collaboration

Each session has specific learning objectives and behaviors that develop ERG and BRG Leaders.
