Presentation Details

Fostering an inclusive culture of belonging is not exclusive to large companies with big budgets and big teams. With a team of one or two, you can still achieve impressive results for social impact, employee engagement, diversity, equity, and inclusion.


In 2020, Duck Creek Technologies, an Insurtech company with 1,400 employees worldwide, had only one Employee Resource Group (ERG) and relied on a single consultant for DEI initiatives. There was no plan or strategy. Now, there is a team of three, eight established ERGs, and the program is entirely employee-led. They have been successful despite facing budget limitations and operating remotely as a global organization because they involved as many employees in the effort and making it a grassroots movement.

After this session, you'll be able to:

  1. Engage your employees to lead ERGs and Councils.

  2. Avoid common missteps and challenges and celebrate your successes.

  3. Use a budget of any size effectively to maximize your impact.
