What are Employee Resource Groups?

Employee Resource Groups, commonly know as ERGs, are organizationally supported employee groups that engage different generations, backgrounds, ethnicities and perspectives across all disciplines and will be a catalyst to engage our entire community in supporting the university's mission, vision and values.

In alignment with the university's core qualities, each ERG will encourage an exchange of ideas, promote a greater sense of belonging, and enhance career and personal development of employees in the workplace in support of recrutiment and retention efforts.


Who can participate?

Our new Employee Resource Groups are open to all JMU employees.


What ERGs are currently offered?

Three Employee Resource Groups are currently being offered.  They are:

Tapestry: Ethnically diverse employees and those that enjoy sharing and learning about diverse backgrounds and promoting cultural awareness.

Veterans: Active duty, reserve, veteran, guard, military family members and supporters.

WeCare: Working caregivers and those who support them in parenting, guardianship, grandparenting, or those assisting elders or individuals that are sick or living with a disability.
