Workforce SynQ | July 2024

July 31 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am CDT

Free

Join SynQ to discuss how you attract employees to join your Employee Resource Group. Every organization differs in its culture, so we will share some best practices and ideas in attracting employees to join your network. This open discussion will cover ideas for small and large organizations with newly formed ERGs to well-established groups. We will also discuss the benefits of sharing your ERGs as an external recruitment tool to attract and retain diverse talent.

What is the Workforce SynQ?

The business environment is full of a colorful rainbow of voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Some organizations call their groups Employee Resource Groups. Some call them Business Resource Groups, while others may call them Diversity Councils, Pride Groups, or Affinity Groups.

Regardless of the name, the purpose is the same — LGBTQ+ Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity. To avoid confusion and ensure everyone feels welcome and included, we present “Workforce SynQ”.

SynQ assembles leaders from member businesses with existing and emerging LGBTQ ERG programs to share best practices, explore relevant topics, and improve effectiveness.

Rotating monthly between online and in-person meetings, SynQ provides opportunities for creating community, resource sharing, skill development, and increased collaboration with other leaders and group members

SynQ specializes in creating Pride in the workplace year-round!
