Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

Emmanuel offers Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to provide additional support for faculty, staff, and administrators. ERGs are voluntary and employee-led.

ERGs strive to welcome and affirm employees by providing networking events, professional development opportunities, and social activities. Additional programs and services may be offered in collaboration with:

  • Colleges of the Fenway (COF)
  • New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC)
  • Emmanuel College student organizations
  • And many more partners!

Emmanuel currently offers two ERGs:

  • Employees of Color at Emmanuel College (EC @ EC)
    EC @ EC offers Emmanuel’s employees of color a chance to forge valuable connections with one another.  For more information on how to get involved with EC @ EC, contact Diana Estime, Director of Residence Life, at 617-975-9141 or estimed@emmanuel.edu.  
  • OUTEmmanuel
    OUTEmmanuel aims to engage Emmanuel’s LGBTQ+ employees in safe and supportive community.  For more information on how to get involved with OUTEmmanuel, contactAlly Ruffo, Academic Advisor at 617-735-9795 or ruffoa@emmanuel.edu.  

ERGs are voluntary groups formed by Emmanuel College employees. If you are interested in forming a group that aligns with the mission of the College and the goals listed above, please contact Jeff Smith, Associate Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at smithj4@emmanuel.edu
