This article is part of InHerSight's ERG Spotlights series. Curious about how employee resource groups actually make a difference? Delve into real ERGs at companies that support diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Employee resource groups (ERGs) can be integral to helping employees find a sense of community and belonging at an organization, but creating a successful ERG requires clear expectations, meaningful actions, measurable results (aka a change in a company’s benefits, culture, or policies), and feedback from members that they feel seen and heard. We asked our partner companies to share how one of their ERGs is moving the needle for equity at their organization. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the women's group at Best Egg.

Best Egg (BE) Women

Best Egg is a consumer financial technology platform that aims to help people feel more confident about their everyday finances through a suite of products and resources. Internally, the company strives to create an environment where all employees can be their authentic selves. Through their ERGs, they provide resources, support, and guidance to their employees in an effort to continue championing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for all individuals in the workplace.

Expectation: Their goals

The group’s goal is to energize and inspire women to empower one another’s personal and professional growth by providing a forum for networking, development, knowledge sharing, community outreach, and recruitment while collaborating to produce opportunities for advancement, leadership, and mentoring. 

The group hosts monthly discussions on current events and upcoming networking and learning opportunities. They also encourage discussion and conversation within their Slack channel and consistently provide resources, knowledge, and tools to assist members in their professional and personal journeys.

Employee insight 

“Our ERG team is putting together panels and focusing on helping women within the organization. Women in business face unique challenges so hearing from other women and sharing experiences is so important.” —Maureen Connors, Senior Director Marketing

Action: Programming they offer

The BE Women ERG offers a variety of opportunities for members to connect, collaborate, and network. In June, they also participated in Best Egg’s first ever Helping Hands Carnival, a company event where employees, their families, and members of the community could learn more about nonprofits and hear directly from Best Egg ERGs. Coming up, BE Women plans to host Best Egg’s second annual women’s roundtable event.

In addition, they've discussed opportunities to attend women's leadership programs and women's conferences in the Delaware and Pennsylvania areas. Leaders and group members consistently share articles, videos, and podcasts via their Slack channel to spark conversation around topics including professionalism, awareness of gender diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, and encouragement around career advancement.

Employee insight

“In the aftermath of the Roe v. Wade decision, the entire country was in turmoil—pockets of the country were either celebrating or lambasting the decision. There was no middle ground. One place I found solace was through my company's BE Women ERG—they provided a forum and ‘safe space’ to discuss the decision and its impacts, near and wide. Not only did the ERG assist me in processing my emotions and thoughts, but it also provided a community of like-minded colleagues who I could connect with for further discussion.” —Liz Kim, Associate General Counsel

Results: Progress they’ve made

After the Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, the BE Women group discussed potential next steps and possibilities for the future. Over the days following the decision, the group shared suggestions and offered their support to one another—some advising on how other companies were handling the ruling, such as updating their benefits to include travel reimbursements. 

Best Egg employees are primarily remote, with employees living in many states across the U.S. Through conversations and awareness in conjunction with BE Women, company leaders worked swiftly to provide a solution, including updated benefit options for all employees to ensure health and safety while also guaranteeing privacy and confidentiality.
