Vonage Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
ERGs promote DE&I and support the professional and personal development of all team members. ERGs are created with the intent to amplify diversity, create a more inclusive environment, and encourage ongoing discussions about equity in the workplace and the world. Each ERG at Vonage has at least one executive sponsor and all are led by our team members. Vonage ERGs serve as forums for Vonage team members to convene with shared interests and common goals.
These ERGs are open to all and create a place for team members to share experiences and connect. Through these connections, Vonage ERGs are building a sense of community and belonging both within our organization and the communities in which we operate. Participation is voluntary. After just a few short months, already 25% of our employees are participating in an ERG and the number continues to grow.
Some of our current ERGs are highlighed below.
The Black Experience
The Black Experience’s mission is to support the development and engagement of Black Vonage team members while promoting a corporate culture of diversity, equity and inclusion. The Black Experience ERG aims to make Vonage a destination place to work for Black talent and seeks opportunities to represent the Vonage brand throughout the tech community.
Vamos Vonage is focused on building and empowering the Latino community by fostering and maintaining an inclusive, supportive and culturally competent environment.
The purpose of the V+ Pride ERG is to increase visibility and reduce prejudice against the LGBTQIA+ community and its members here at Vonage.
