All Disabled Employee Networks (DEN) or Employee Resource Groups (ERG) get stale from time to time. That’s just the nature of networks. They rely on volunteers and when the day job comes first (necessarily) then sometimes network responsibilities take second priority. At this event PurpleSpace will offer essential know-how when renewing, refreshing and reinvigorating a disabled employee network/employee resource group.
