Employee Resource Groups

Educator GroupsEmployee Resource Groups (ERGs) foster professional development and collegial support among individuals who share a particular background, interest, or issue.

Building on the success of the 2019 Colloquium, where educators of color played a prominent role in elevating the visibility of community led equity work in the district, the CPS District Plan identified the need to expand and strengthen support for ERGs, including recruiting, hiring, and retaining a CPS workforce that reflects the diversity of Cambridge. Support for these groups is jointly provided by Cambridge Public Schools Office of Human Resources and the CEA Educators of Color Coalition. (Read their Mission Statement >>) Among the benefits of participating:

  • Connecting with others with similar needs in order to help push innovation, both internally and externally
  • Providing increased support for professional development and leadership opportunities
  • Expanding recruitment efforts to be more inclusive
  • Feeling part of a community with others who understand various backgrounds and challenges
