Providing the support that your ERG Leaders need.

This is all we focus on here at Verbate. Here's how we do it:

Development

Foundational Training for ERG Leadership

Verbate's Foundational Training gives ERG Leaders the core frameworks and current best practices of ERG Leadership. Once they've completed the training, we award them with a certificate to reward and recognize their leadership development.

Our Foundational Training is held virtually 8-10 times per year, so Leaders can choose the cohort that works for their schedule.

Resources & Strategic Support

Alongside our Foundational Training, we've built a deep library of ERG Templates, Guides, and Frameworks that make sure ERG Leaders are never starting from scratch.

Every live sesson we host - from Foundational Training sessions to Friday Workshops and Fireside Chats - is recorded and transcribed so that Leaders can make the most of them at their convenience.

Last but not least, Leaders get always-on support via our Community members and Verbate's Founders. Whether it be via our Forum or DM, an answer to their question is never far away.

Inspiration

Year-round Events & Experts

Nearly every Friday, Verbate hosts Community-wide events to drive continous development and suppoort.

ERG Leaders in Verbate are regularly inspired by Fireside Chats featuring top experts in their field, Workshops that give Leaders time to focus on strategic challenges, and Networking Sessions that connect Leaders championing the same group at different companies.

FAQs

+
Who is the Verbate ERG Leadership Community built for?

The Verbate ERG Leadership Community is a leadership development experience designed specifically for ERG Leads. This program offers a unique opportunity for ERG Leads to learn best practices, develop key leadership skills, and collaborate with peers across various industries, ultimately strengthening their impact within their organizations.

+
How can I sign up for the program?

You can sign up for the Verbate ERG Leadership Program & Community by purchasing a seat using the table above. We recommend registering early to secure your seat, as space is limited for each cohort to ensure thoughtful collaboration and attention.

+
How is the program structured, and how much time is required?

The core program consists of four weekly live sessions hosted via Zoom, each lasting 60 minutes, totaling 4 hours of learning. Each session focuses on a specific topic related to ERG leadership and includes expert-led content, interactive discussions, and practical exercises. At the end of each week, Verbate also hosts an optional 45 minute deep-dive fireside chats with an expert in the space, where ERG Leads can meet one another and ask questions about their experience.

Once you've completed the core program, you become a member of the Community and gain ongoing access to bi-weekly cross-company ERG Leader meet ups, expert fireside chats, and our library of resources.

+
What is the cost of the program?

The cost to join the Program & Community is $599 per leader. This price includes access to all the program materials and access to the community of other ERG leaders who have participated in the program. If you participate with 5 or more ERG Leaders from your organization, you may be eligible to receive a group discount.

+
Can my company pay for the program?

Yes, many companies offer professional development budgets for their employees. We encourage you to check with your HR or Learning & Development department to see if they can cover the cost of the program.

Here's an email you can use to justify the reimbursement of the program to your company leadership. You can present the program as an opportunity to invest in your professional development as an ERG leader, highlighting the benefits it will bring to your organization in terms of improved ERG strategy, engagement, and impact.

+
When is the next cohort?

If you can't join the upcoming cohort, you can join our waitlist for future cohorts. We'll announce the next cohort start date once the current cohort signup period has closed! Generally speaking, we'll have one cohort per quarter.

+
Can individuals from any company join the program?

Of course! The Verbate ERG Leadership Program & Community is open to ERG Leads and other relevant ERG champions from any company, regardless of size or industry.

+
If I'm a Program Manager, can I participate in the program?

Of course! In every cohort we tend to have a good handful of Program Managers participating, especially if its their company's first time putting Leads through. It gives Program Managers a good grasp of the frameworks their Leads may employ, as well as an understanding of the resources and content that is available to them. (Not to mention - Program Managers ought to have a strong grasp of these concepts, too!)

+
What happens if I'm unable to attend one of the sessions?

If you're unable to attend one of the sessions, don't worry - all of them will be recorded (excluding any of the breakout sessions) and will be accessible to the participant for later viewing.

+
What will happen upon the conclusion of the cohort?

Once a Leader completes the cohort, a few things happen: 1) they'll receive a certificate from Verbate that they can upload to your LinkedIn profile, 2) they'll be able to continue participating in the Community of practice to collaborate and continue learning from your peers, and 3) they'll be able to continue using all of the resources and templates they've gained access to within the Verbate platform.
