Natasha will lead us off with a discussion of the key considerations form starting an employee resource group (ERG) or Equality Group   to how to maintain and grow a successful group and spearheading collaborations with other groups.

Specific topics to be covered:

Mary will share her experience in the growth of Equality Groups at Salesforce, and will discuss how the groups began and eventually grew to include 10 groups! 

Mary will touch upon:

• First Equality Group  - Women in Tech

• The beginnings of Outforce, V2MOM for Boldforce

• Expanding focus from a group's own problems to supporting others

• How to determine how the group can be an asset/partner to the business

We will then transition into a discussion about how what has been shared relates to out current climate concerning diversity and inclusion.
