Amtrak Honored at the 2023 Diversity Impact Awards

Greensboro, NC (July 17, 2023)Talent Dimensions and the Global ERG Network (previously the Association of ERGs & Councils) have released their annual list of the Top 25 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), Top 10 Enterprise-Wide ERGs, Executive Sponsor Recognition Awards and Impact Spotlight Awards. These groups will be recognized at The Diversity Impact Awards Ceremony in Washington, DC, during the 2023 Global ERG Network Conference October 11- 13, 2023.

Amtrak’s A. Philip Randolph ERG received the 2023 Diversity Impact Top 25 ERG Award. With a goal of  increasing awareness of cultural differences within their own community and the Amtrak community at large, the A. Philip Randolph ERG seeks to create a welcoming environment to help employees feel supported. The ERG promotes individual and collective growth through various resources and networking opportunities, focusing on areas such as recruitment, retention and professional development.

The 2023 Diversity Impact Awards continue to build on its previous success as the leader in diversity impact and performance measurement. Using the ERG Strategic Impact Model, organizations are scored in key areas that ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils should focus on to drive organizational results. Leveraging data from the application and feedback process allows these groups to articulate their impact with key stakeholders and provide an expanded opportunity for learning. When organizations participate year-over-year in the Diversity Impact Awards, the data provides them with a benchmark among competing organizations and the ability to chart or measure their own progress over time.

“With many newcomers to this year’s Diversity Impact Awards, we continue to see these groups push the envelope in an effort to increase their impact and effectiveness through their DEI initiatives. Their results show the valuable outcomes that are achieved when they’re aligned with the business strategy of the organizations they serve and are recognized as key business partners. Each year we are inspired by all of our applicants and their work to build a true sense of belonging within their organizations through DEI.” says Cile Johnson, Chief Business Officer.

Talent Dimensions’ mission is to help organizations create Inclusive workspaces, where every employee feels that they truly belong. By helping organizations focus on how they can align their DEI strategy to drive business outcomes and cultivate a sense of belonging, they’re able to build the key infrastructure they need to be successful. ERGs and Councils are the most valuable partners an organization can have on this journey,” shares Lynn Cowart, Principle and Chief Operations Officer at Talent Dimensions.

The 2023 Diversity Impact Awards’ recipient rankings will be revealed at the Diversity Impact Awards ceremony during the 2023 Global ERG Network Conference.
