As an Elevate initiative, The ERG Economy convenes cross-industry stakeholders of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to share and co-create innovative, leading-edge insights that benefit the overall ecosystem and economy of ERGs.


To achieve our vision, The Elevate ERG Economy Initiative co-creates:

  • Strategies and solutions to maximize ERG impact, development, and innovation
  • Practical Resources, such as our signature ToolBooks, Toolkits, and other content
  • Research on ERGs that leverage shared information and insights from many stakeholders
  • Communities such as Mastermind Groups, CoP+s, and summits to jointly forge innovative solutions and share best practices
 The ERG Economy is an initiative of Elevate.


Elevate is a multi-university partnership, along with Spectrum Knowledge and the University of California Office of the President—MESA. We cross-pollinate industry and academic innovation for inclusive and diverse leadership. One unified phrase embodies both our mission and vision:


Elevate helps you define, refine, and align your purpose with your organization’s purpose.
