Event Ideas for the First Year of a Faith-Based Employee Resource Group (ERG)Article / Produced by TOW Project and Partners
Plan for an engaging event at least once a quarter. Events galvanize your base of support and give members a fun opportunity to meet one another and grow connections. Here are some possible events.
Plan for regular meetings – whether they’re weekly, monthly, or quarterly – where members can learn together, network, and share problems and prayers. This could be before work, during a lunch break, or after work at a local watering hole. Use PRS.work for easy videos to get discussion started.

Invite a speaker on a topic of interest such as Stewardship or Leadership. While nationally renowned speakers are a draw, don’t discount the value of a company insider sharing their faith story. A well-respected team member will inspire their contacts to come to the event and experience the ERG community.
Participating in a day of community service builds team spirit and demonstrates the values your ERG embodies to your company. Consider partnering with a local charity, or participate in a walk for a cause.
