ERGs at Guidewire: The Voices of ONYX
At Guidewire, we have a whole host of ERGs for colleagues to get involved with. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are employee-led groups made up of volunteer individuals who represent common interests, experiences, backgrounds, or demographics (e.g. race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, military status, religion, abilities, age, etc.). In today’s blog we’ll hear from co-lead, Angel, and members J. and Morgan on all things ONYX.
What is ONYX?
Morgan Anderson, Inside Sales Representative: ONYX is a group of allies working together to foster networking, professional development, mentoring, and leadership opportunities. We share unique experiences of those from the African diaspora and work to promote growth, success, and inclusion.
Angel Hunter, Executive Assistant, Business Initiatives: It’s our mission to partner with our allies and supporters to build social and professional networks, and to increase the visibility and presentation of people with African ancestry here at Guidewire; encouraging a welcoming, collaborative culture that values diverse voices and unique perspectives in everything we do; and celebrate the rich history and traditions of Africans, Caribbeans and African Americans.
I joined ONYX to be a voice and help educate, cultivate, and develop a strong sense of community within Guidewire. I believe there is strength in our unity and I’m passionate about bridging the gap as we promote cultural awareness and professional development.
J. Giles, Inside Sales Representative: My mission is to help create an inclusive culture for my peers. I’ve become an external advocate on LinkedIn. Daily, I consistently post content about our products and company cultural efforts. We’re a great place to work, with an amazing product, so I do my part to get the word out.
