Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are groups of employees that form with a common bond, a shared characteristic or life experience. They provide support, help with career or personal development, and work to address issues inside and outside of the workplace. Who can be involved? ANYONE! Full or part time staff are encouraged to engage with ERG’s. All ERG’s are open to everyone whether you are learner, supporter, or ally. The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas currently have 3 ERGs: 

Women Empowered (WE) - Women's ERG

Campeones Unidos - Hispanic/Latino ERG

DREAM - African American ERG
