Purpose of Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide forums for employees to gather and share ideas about matters that affect their professional development and work at Whatcom Community College (WCC). WCC administration is supportive of a system of Employee Resource Groups that contribute to the following:

  • Foster employee development
  • Contribute to the College’s commitment to advancing social equity, while challenging systems of power, privilege and inequities
  • Strengthen networking and cohesiveness across the College, and promote career and professional development 
  • Provide important feedback to management and assist with efforts to attract and retain highly qualified candidates for employment at WCC
Employee Resource Group Leads must create a legacy document or brief annual summary that includes the name of the lead contact for the following year, number of meetings held, participant names, and highlights from the previous year related the strategic plan, retention, professional development, and/or the group’s goals. This is due by July of each year.
