ERG Charter Template

Why Use This Template

Employee Resource Groups are voluntary, employee-led groups for staff who share similar characteristics like gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation, lifestyle or interests that provide support for personal or career development and create a safe space where employees can be their true, authentic selves. Use this template to establish your ERG’s purpose, make commitments to ensure members can speak freely and be themselves, think about how you will spend your time together and decide how you will measure your success.


Put your values to work. Act on equity.

We believe equity isn’t a box to check. It’s a daily action. Someone’s unique identity isn’t something to overcome–when paired with the right opportunity, it becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We exist to empower social impact organizations to recognize and overcome unconscious bias, racism and sexism so they can build a workforce that reflects and strengthens the communities they serve.
