Meet The Mandate

Executive Order on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and 
Accessibility in the Federal Workforce

The executive order signed by President Biden on June 25th mandates that agencies of the US federal government enact better, stronger, more comprehensive programs in support of Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, and Accessibility. Within that executive order, the president asserts that Employee Resource Groups (Affinity Groups) and mentoring are key components of the DEIA programs he envisions. 

 

It is a well-known fact that Employee Resource Groups (ERG) or Affinity Groups--as some have named them--are the lifeblood of any DEIA initiative. In large organizations, the number of ERGs and how widespread they are can be impediments to their success.
