Note: A UW Health login is required to access this page.
From the UW Health Website: “These voluntary, employee-led Employee Resource Groups (ERG) foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices and objectives that focus on the experience and perspectives of people of a particular race, ethnic or cultural background, gender, gender identity, religion, age cohort, sexual orientation, history of disabilities, military services, or similar other parameters.
ERGs are intended to provide opportunities for employee networking, professional and personal development activities, improve cultural understanding among UW Health employees, improve UW Health recruiting efforts, promote education related to diversity, equity and inclusion, align with UW Health social responsibilities efforts and support UW Health’s efforts in cultural competency.”

- “The Black/African-American Employee Resource Group is a supportive and confidential space for employees who identify as Black or African-American regardless of location, age, income, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, immigration status, ability status or diagnosis. We meet monthly but are available to hold space for you between meetings if needed.” – Jessi Kendall and Adrian Jones, Co-Chairs
