New Employee Resource Groups launch
Everyone is welcome to participate - you don't need to be a member to attend.
Stanford Medicine is working to build a community where everyone feels valued, celebrated and welcome. To further champion a culture of inclusion, we're launching eight new Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These groups are voluntary and open to the extended Stanford Medicine community, which includes employees of
- Stanford School of Medicine,
- Stanford Health Care,
- Stanford Children's Health,
- University Healthcare Alliance, and
- Valley Health Care.
What is an Employee Resource Group?
Employee resource groups are voluntary, employee-led groups of employees who join together in their workplace based on shared characteristics or life experiences. ERGs are generally based on providing support, enhancing career development, and contributing to personal development in the work environment and external communities.
Stanford is launching eight new groups:
- Stanford BEAM (Black Employee Advancement and Mentoring) TEAM (Trust Empowerment Affiliation and Membership) and Allies
- Asian and Pacific Islander and Allies
- Emerging Professionals and Allies
- Latin X and Allies
- Stanford Medicine Staff Pride and Allies
- Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC) and Allies
- Women and Allies
- Working Parents and Allies
You're invited: Upcoming ERG launches

You don't need to be members of the affinity group to participate. ERGs are like a family. Family events include people who are not directly family, but act as family.
