Background of the ERG/BRG Regional Roundtable
In collaboration with the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) and U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency, National ACE conducted three Employee Resource Group/ Business Resource Groups (ERG/BRG) National Roundtables the past three years. The round tables were held at the White House in 2014 and 2016. It held at the Department of Commerce in 2015. They brought leaders from ERG/BRG from across the nation and provided tremendous insights on challenges facing senior AAPI executives and ERG/BRG leaders. However, many best practice and success stories were shared and cross company networking among the participants cannot be under estimated.
This Chicago roundtable is designed to be gather unique best practices and new solutions that can be shared in future National roundtable. The intent is to have regional roundtables during the year then bring all together at the end of the year in DC. The Chicago regional roundtable will be used for other region. In addition to bringing AAPI senior executives and their organization sponsors and advocates to share best practices and discuss challenges with others at the senior executive levels, programs from advocacy organizations will be reviewed and examined. Key topic of discussion will be “Leadership Development & Sponsorship and community engagement.
Who should attend?
Senior AAPI executives, ERG/BRG leaders, Corporate professionals who are interested in forming erg/brg at their companies (private corporations, government agencies, and small business), community organizations leaders and board members,and AAPI Community advocates.
Background of the Community Reception
