An Employee Resource Group serves as a resource for members and the University by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the institutional mission, vision, goals, business practices, and objectives.
In other words, it’s a group of faculty and staff with a common purpose coming together to provide opportunities to connect with and to support each other.
It depends on the needs and services of the group. It could include guest speakers, attending community events, professional development, social interactions, etc.
ERGs are open to all faculty and staff of the University.
The goal of the ERG program is to provide a hub for information and support for faculty and staff groups. This is an evolving initiative, and a process for groups to become an ERG is in development. If you are interested in starting an ERG, please email askHR@baylor.edu to learn more.
The Black Faculty Staff Association is dedicated to providing Black faculty, staff, and graduate students professional development, support, and mentoring through critical dialogue, cultural awareness, networking, recruitment, and retention in order to further enrich our academic excellence, worldwide leadership and service, and Christian commitment within a caring community.
