Meet our Employee Resource Groups
For nearly 30 years, GE’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) have added value to our colleagues and businesses by helping to engage and develop the diverse talent needed to build a world that works. These are communities built on common backgrounds and experiences that welcome all employees to learn, connect, advocate, and foster a sense of belonging. Currently, there are seven company-wide ERGs and further expansion is expected in 2021.
African American/Affinity Forum (AAF)
The AAF has a deep-rooted history and culture within GE as the oldest ERG. Born out of activism, the AAF was founded on the principle of community, attracting, promoting, and developing diverse talent in America and across GE’s global operations. As the group evolves from awareness and allyship to advocacy, they remain committed to driving transformative growth.
Asian Pacific Allies & Friends (APAF)
Founded to support GE’s Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) employees across North America, APAF offers education and mentoring opportunities to grow leadership abilities. The group promotes the value of the APIA community and works closely with APIA students interested in pursuing STEM careers. APAF has a strong community service component, organizing and participating in many activities with outside partners.
The Pride Alliance is welcoming of employees who identify as part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, and intersex (LGBTQAI+) community and their allies. The group raises awareness around LGBTQAI+ issues and provides support and advocacy for creating inclusive work environments. The Pride Alliance promotes GE’s commitment to developing LGBTQAI+ talent and engages in meaningful conversations with senior leadership.
The HF is committed to creating an inclusive environment where Hispanics can thrive and become a culture catalyst for GE and our communities through promoting Hispanic heritage, showcasing Hispanic talent and value, and enabling strong networks and alliances across ERGs. HF draws upon the talents and passions of its members to explore and share Hispanic culture, elevating important conversations on social and economic issues, as well as community support.
Disabilities Advocacy Network (DAN)
The DAN’s mission is to provide support and resources that enable people with disabilities, their families, and allies to connect and thrive. With nearly 2,000 members, DAN raises awareness and fosters a sense of inclusion in our communities through events, education, and advocacy efforts.
Building on GE’s strong commitment to military veteran recruitment and development, the Veterans Network was established in 2009 to make GE an employer of choice for veterans, reservists, and guardsmen. The Veterans Network creates a GE community of veterans and veteran leaders to support and encourage the career development and growth of all members.
Women’s Network (WN)
The WN was created in 1997 to attract, develop, inspire, and retain female professional talent. It is all about growth. It exists for the women working at GE to cultivate their leadership skills, business practices, personal contacts, and career opportunities. By engaging and developing their membership in areas such as technology, operations, and commercial roles, they are promoting growth leaders who will ensure both their career success and GE’s growth as a company.
