Supporting our ERG/BRG professionals to build the leadership pipeline



NAAAP is pleased to announce the ERG Virtual Training Program (ERG VTP). This program has been created in response to the immense need to connect ERG / BRG leaders with resources for leadership development, skill-building, and a virtual community.


NAAAP’s ERG VTP is open to any current members or officers of an ERG / BRG at an organization. We invite participants from any industry sector or level in their company to join.


Through this program, participants will be able to:
1) Understand Asian cultural values in the context of leadership, and how contextual factors to do with our community and perceptions of our identity can influence workplace dynamics;
2) Explore possibilities for ERG/BRG programming, membership recruitment and engagement, and alignment with organizational goals 3) Understand key stakeholders, executive sponsors, budgetary considerations, and other important elements of successfully running an ERG/BRG
4) Connect with other professionals who are involved with their ERGs from across industry, location, and level
5) Apply key learnings in a practical way that will enhance their ERG through a capstone assignment.

Be a part of a community to enhance learning and development in leading your ERG!

We invite members of the NAAAP National Leadership Academy / ERG Leadership Symposium to be part of this premiere program with this special invitation.

Limited Spots Available.
