Eric Love is encouraging the campus community to take advantage of some new resources to aid in the recruitment and retention of diverse employees. Employee resource groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups created by a shared characteristic, interest or life experience. Three groups currently exist at Notre Dame: the Black Faculty and Staff Association, THRIVE! Women’s Leadership and Young Leaders of Notre Dame. A fourth group focusing on the Hispanic community just completed its charter and will soon begin accepting members. And work is under way to establish an international group as well as an LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) group.
