Here's what our members say about Verbate

How the program is structured


Upon joining the Verbate Leadership Community & Program, you'll begin a 4 week, cohort-based learning course. During this course, you'll learn both the fundamentals and advanced strategies needed to be a best-in-class ERG Leader. Along the way, you'll build strong relationships with other members in your cohort leading similar groups, and learn how to get the most out of the Verbate community.

Each week will include a 1 hour live-learning session, which includes workshops and breakout sessions. These sessions take place on Tuesdays at 12pm ET (9am PT). At the end of each week, Verbate's CEO Anisha Nandi will host a fireside chat + Q&A with an industry expert about an ERG-related topic related to that week's curriculum.

Who is the Verbate ERG Leadership Growth Program built for?

The Verbate ERG Leadership Growth Program is a leadership development course 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 is the program structured, and how much time is required?

The 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 session with an expert in the space, where ERG Leads can meet one another and ask questions about their experience.

What is Verbate's ERG Lead Community of Practice?

Alongside the educational programming, Verbate hosts an asynchronous community of ERG Leaders. As a participant in any of Verbate's programs, you gain lifetime access to this community. Participants in this community can choose to attend optional virtual and in-person meetups, collaboration sessions, and speaker series.

What is the cost of the program?

The cost of the program is $299 per leader for Insight Partners portfolio companies. This price includes access to all the program materials and unlimited access to the community of other ERG leaders who have participated in the program.

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, Verbate hosts one cohort per quarter.

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.

Can individuals from any company join the program?

Of course! The Verbate ERG Leadership Growth Program is open to ERG Leads and other interested individuals from any company, regardless of size or industry.

How can I sign up for the program?

You can sign up for the Verbate ERG Leadership Growth Program by completing this registration form. We recommend registering early to secure your spot, as spaces are limited for each cohort.

What kind of support is available?

Our team is available to provide technical support and answer any questions you have about the program. You can reach us via email or the community discussion forum.
