The mission of ACG’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) is to build a successful and sustainable foundation that represents the diverse perspectives of our employees and members. The ACG ERGs have the unique opportunity to network with senior leaders, share ideas, promote cultural awareness, support diversity recruitment, develop professionally, impact communities and drive business innovation. Our current ERG communities include the African American ERG, the Pride ERG, the Asian American Pacific Islander ERG, the Diverse Abilities ERG, the Emerging Professionals ERG, the Hispanic/Latinx ERG, the Middle Eastern/North African ERG, the Veterans ERG, and the Women in Leadership ERG.
African American ERG

Asian American Pacific Islander ERG
The vision: Promote authentic cultural appreciation, grow representation of Asian and Pacific Islanders within ACG and promote the AAA brand within the community—all while providing role models, mentors and opportunities for professional development for its members and suppliers.
