January is also an excellent time for goal setting and planning. We've included information from DiversityInc. to help your employee groups manage and build a Calendar of Events.

Prioritize Diversity, Equity & Inclusion by building a DEI calendar and engaging your organization's employee resource groups or business resource groups. According to Diversity Inc., Best Practices DEI calendars and ERG's deepen employees’ understanding of different cultures, people, and experiences. They also empower employees to expand their networks and accelerate personal growth and development.
Employee Resource Groups (ERG's) benefit organizations by enhancing corporate culture. Events hosted by ERG's allow members the unique opportunity to connect with one another, they can also impact a community. Outside of your existing workforce, events can even help to attract new talent and bring in new customers, increase profits and improve the organization's bottom line.
DEI Calendars - can help keep employees engaged and involved. Marking nationally recognized commemorative months that are commonly recognized and celebrated, is a great first step towards helping employees become culturally competent.
