Building Community & Cultivating Ideas

October 11 – 13, 2023, Omni Shoreham, Washington DC

The Global ERG Network® Conference (GENC) is the first and longest running annual event designed specifically for employee resource groups (ERGs), business resource groups (BRGs) and diversity councils.

This year’s theme, ‘Building Community & Cultivating Ideas,’ centers the learning and networking opportunities on how we can come together as a community to increase the effectiveness and impact of our ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils.

By focusing on learning through the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) community we can generate new and transformative ideas that address the problems organizations, and their resource groups are facing today.

The 2023 GEN Conference is an in-person only event hosted at the Omni Shoreham in Washington DC.
