VIDEO: Prosper Launch Parties for Employee Resource Groups
Joining ERGs is easy using ULearn! Instructions are below.
Fun, fun, fun: Join us for Employee Resource Group (ERG) launch parties at Medical Center-Fort Worth from 7-9 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 21
Our launch parties for the new Employee Resource Group program at Cook Children's are a hit. Hundreds of employees gathered in Prosper on Tuesday, Sept. 19, to learn more about the four ERGs and to sign up to participate. Attendees danced to music provided by a DJ, picked up special t-shirts, and posed for photos. Hear from leaders and attendees in this video of the festivities at Prosper.
Please join us for two more ERG parties at Cook Children's Medical Center-Fort Worth:
11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. AND 7-9 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 21
Decker Boardroom near Hochberger Auditorium
(Please make your way to the bottom of the stairs and you’ll see the festivities.)
Joining an ERG provides employees a chance to connect, network, share ideas, learn from one another, foster a sense of inclusion and gain visibility with senior management. Cook Children’s has four ERGs:
Black/African American (BAA+)
Latinos Engaging, Advancing, Developing & Supporting (L.E.A.D.S.+)
This is just the beginning. More ERGs are planned in the future.
Employees may participate either as a member of the specific group or as an ally. You can join more than one ERG. Participation is completely voluntary.
