AIG Canada recognizes the value of encouraging groups of employees with common interests to formalize their professional relationships by launching employee resource groups (ERGs). ERG members are dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment for all employees.
Any employee may become a member of any ERG. Our ERGs often collaborate on initiatives related to the business and to fulfill their individual interests. Initiatives generally fall into one of four areas: career development and networking, cultural awareness and education, community volunteerism and sponsorship, and partnering with leaders to resolve business challenges.
AIG Canada executives actively participate in ERG activities and support ERG goals and objectives.
AIG currently sponsors the following employee resource groups:
AIG offers a variety of multicultural heritage ERGs whose mission is to provide support and guidance to our multicultural employees by offering networking, personal and professional development, and mentoring opportunities in an effort to attain greater recruitment and retention, and leadership recognition within AIG.
