Employee Resource Groups + Inclusion Programs
An employee resource group, also known as an ERG, is a group of employees who join together in the workplace and have shared characteristics or life experiences. These commonalities could be gender, race, ethnicity, or things like veterans, neurodivergent and people with disabilities. Our ERGs are open to all employees, whether they identify as a member of the community or are an ally.
Our ERGs are more than just places for employees to connect, but have the goal of educating and raising awareness for the unique challenges and experiences faced by members of underrepresented groups within tech. The development of our people and leaders is a top priority at MongoDB, and employee resource groups play an important role in helping all of us broaden our perspectives. Learn more about our ERGs below.
