Human capital Employee Resource Groups

Celebrating differences, championing inclusion

As a global information and communications technology leader, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to nurture an inclusive culture that celebrates the diversity of our V Team. Our global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are an important channel to drive engagement, with members often becoming de facto ambassadors of diversity and inclusion across Verizon. We have numerous ERGs, each with its own mission. All work together toward four common objectives:

  • Career: dynamic programming for employee professional development.
  • Customer: a forum for employees to collaborate to help the company deliver great customer experiences in all market segments.
  • Community: outreach to enable economic inclusion for underserved communities.
  • Culture: continue to build an inclusive company culture where everyone can thrive on their uniqueness and contribute to the business.

ERGs help the V Team value and champion our differences and celebrate our similarities. By collaborating through ERGs, members bring their whole and authentic selves to their work and contribute their unique perspectives. Knowing their voices are heard and their work is valued, they find a strong sense of belonging, and harnessing this passion enables Verizon to be an employer of choice and a leader in the industry. We want every member of the V Team to bring their best selves and feel included at work every day.
