Employee resource groups
UnitedHealth Group’s enterprise-wide Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) foster a more inclusive, diverse workplace. ERGs are voluntary, employee-led groups that are typically based upon a shared characteristic, demographic, life experience or allyship. Although ERGs are formed around individuals’ common lived experiences, anyone can join any ERG! Members have opportunities to grow and develop professionally, expand their network, and help us create more inclusive and equitable solutions for those we are privileged to serve.
