There are many kinds of employee networks that develop within corporations, either as a corporate (“top-down”) initiative or because employees self-organize (a “bottom-up” initiative). Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are in the category of what I like to call activist networks.

So, how do companies integrate employee activism with day-to-day business? The simple answer is – collaboration.
