Employee Resource Groups at BFW Publishers

At BFW Publishers we value the unique contributions of all our employees and understand the importance of identity, perspective, and community as we show up in our work everyday. We support the work of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) who provide a framework and a platform for our employees to identify with the voices, issues, challenges, and experiences of the communities they represent. Our ERGs are engaged in providing educational content, celebrating affinity moments, engaging in community issues, and sponsoring career development opportunities for the communities they represent.
