ERGs serve as a resource for their members, foster diversity and inclusion, and drive business results for the organization. Each network can have different objectives, play various roles, and bring different benefits depending on the organizational and societal context, and what the members and the organization itself need.

The key benefits for the members include shared community, an opportunity to make the workplace more inclusive, leadership development and skill-building, career advancement, and visibility. The key benefits for the organization include increased employee engagement, support in advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) goals, talent pipeline, client intelligence, business innovation, and connections to the community.
