2016 ERG Leadership Academy for West Region

The West Region was the first region to participate in the 2016 ERG Leadership Academy in Dallas, TX on February 25th and 26th. About 40 regional West region officers were invited to attend the two day intensive leadership training at AT&T University. Topics covered at the academy include how ERGs can add value to AT&T's mission, understanding Meyers-Briggs personality preference, overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a team, how to write engaging communications, and workshop exercises within each ERGs and across ERGs to share knowledge and experiences. The ERG Leadership Academy also enabled ERG officers to meet Diversity & Inclusion leaders face to face. Cynt Marshall (SVP HR & Chief Diversity Officer) also made a very welcome surprise guest appearance. The ERG Leadership Academy was truly inspiring - arming ERG leaders with additional insights, tools and ideas to foster better engagement opportunities for their members.
