How Employee Resource Groups Can Make a Difference for LGBTQ+ Professionals
LGBTQ+ individuals make up an estimated 5.9 percent of the US workforce but remain underrepresented in managerial and leadership ranks. Despite some gains, professional service firms still have room for improvement when it comes to achieving better LGBTQ+ representation in these positions.
We sat down with Meredith Rarus and Darren Yu to talk about this issue, the importance of building an inclusive culture, and the obstacles in recruiting and retaining LGBTQ+ talent. Together, they lead BRG’s ThinkPride employee resource group (ERG), in which LGBTQ+ professionals and allies can cultivate allyship, share unique challenges, and push for organizational change.
BRG is committed to embracing a culture of diversity in all of our offices.
