The Value of Employee Resource Groups with the TJX Companies


Join the TJX Companies on October 11, 2016 for a half-day event, The Value of Employee Resource Groups, in support of TJX’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives! Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide a true asset to companies and organizations by bringing together people of similar backgrounds and interests. ERGs are extremely valuable because they ensure the comfort of their employees, help them make connections and take on leadership positions within the groups, and they also help in accomplishing business goals


Dawn Frazier-Bohnert, Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Liberty Mutual Insurance, will discuss key considerations when launching ERGs. Julianne Haskell, Managing Director of Global Inclusion and Diversity at State Street, will talk about running global ERGs. Isabel Cruz, Senior Human Resources Manager at GE will explain how ERGs align with talent management. The keynote speaker for the Value of Employee Resource Groups will be Juliette Mayers, President and CEO of Inspiration Zone, LLC, a multicultural consulting firm.
