DEI Council Circle Welcome!  We are excited to invite you all to this kickoff meeting.
This is a cross organization member circle designed to share best practices and support each other in your roles.

First Meeting Agenda:
DEI Council Circle Member Introductions
Eliza Gonzalez-introduce topics from the survey

  • Levels of maturity: members share how they would describe their BRG/ERG maturity level (e.g.: start-up, in-transition, advanced, etc..)
  • C-Suite sponsorship:  how important is having senior-level sponsorship for your BRGs/ERGs?
  • Metrics:  do you currently monitor areas of strength and areas of focus through metrics?  If not, is this something that you are pursuing?


  • Alignment to business:  how do you ensure the goals, mission, and actions of your BRG/ERG are aligned with the business?


  • Governance model:  Is there consistency in how each BRG/ERG operates across the org?  What interfaces exist between your BRGs/ERGs and other departments through common goals (for example:  office of diversity & inclusion, corporate social responsibility, other departments?)


  • BRG and Talent Development linkage:  Active involvement in BRGs is a great opportunity for women of all levels in the org to demonstrate their leadership skills.  By demonstrating their leadership skills in a BRG, women gain exposure beyond their “day jobs” providing additional opportunities for career advancement and expansion of their network inside and outside of the organization.
