Employee Resource Groups

Fostering excellence, inclusion, and equity.

The Role of Employee Resource Groups

Employee resource groups (ERGs) – also called employee network or affinity groups – began as small, informal, self-started employee groups for people with common interests and issues. Today, they exist not only to benefit their group members, but to support Los Rios' efforts to attract and retain diverse employees.

These groups celebrate, validate, and respect the individuals of our organization. They are open to all employees and typically have a structure of campus leaders as well as periodic meetings and/or socials. They may also serve in an advisory capacity, as needed.

Our resource groups include employees who self-identify as:

  • African American/Black/African
  • Asian American/Pacific Islander/South Asian/Southeast Asian
  • Latinx/Chicanx
  • LGBTQIA+ (or lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, non-binary)
  • Native American/Indigenous/First Nation
