Executive Circle

The Upward Synergy Executive Circle convenes Executive Champions of ERGs. These executives are comprised of C-Levels, Presidents, Vice Presidents and Directors from major organizations at the Fortune 500-level, privately held companies and government agencies.


Our research initiatives allow companies to share information confidentially and benchmark ERG effectiveness. We also provide data-driven Information that ensures quantifiable results and strategic performance—and we even measure Return-On-Investment.


We gather best practices and expertise from ERGs and share them across companies. These tools guide organizations and their ERGs to strategize and develop effectively. As ERGs grow, so do their organizations.

Our Partners


Upward Synergy and UC Riverside have partnered with Center for Research on Employment and the Workforce “CREW”, operated by the Career Center at California State University, Fullerton, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, to disseminate information on best practices to support Employee Resource Groups. Upward Synergy is the hub for all ERGs. We synergize the collective knowledge, best practices and passion of ERGs across organizations. Our mission is to align Employee Resource Groups to augment their Organization's business Return on Investment (ROI).

We feature our own "ERG" model of the "Executive Circle", "Research" and "Guidance."
