"ERGs and Diversity Councils are vital links for improving organizational results," said Linda Stokes, President & CEO of PRISM. "They need opportunities to improve and grow by learning and sharing best practices, gaining important insights, knowledge and skills to increase their impact and effectiveness. They also need to be recognized and awarded for the contribution and results. This is the purpose behind the annual Conference and Honors Award," concluded Stokes.
"Our intent is to enable ERGs and Diversity Councils to use this application as a way to learn what they are doing well and how they can continue to improve their impact," said Fernando Serpa, Executive Director of the Association of ERGs & Councils.
