OEI Launches Employee Resource Groups

The Office of Equity and Inclusion is excited to announce the launch of Employee Resource Groups for all Lewis & Clark employees.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster inclusion and mutual support. These groups are generally formed around common identities, interests, or backgrounds, and give people who share those identities a space to network, support each other, and build community.
