Benefits to CHOP employees

CHOP's Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide our employees with a sense of connection to the broader mission of the organization beyond their day-to-day tasks — allowing opportunities to impact strategic organizational drivers by ensuring that key-specific dimensions of diversity are fully integrated.

Members provide each other with an enhanced sense of belonging through broadening access to personal and professional development and growth. In addition, members offer each other a broader scope for personal and professional development through mentoring, volunteerism and community involvement.

Coordinating with community, regional and national partners, ERGs can effectively promote CHOP as employer of choice among diverse audiences.

CHOP’s current Employee Resource Groups

All Abilities Resource Group (AARG)

AARG is an employee network that works to develop and enhance CHOP’s workplace diversity efforts by expanding the visibility of people with disabilities in the workplace and offering recommendations for adequate accommodations and resources available throughout the organization for all employees and families. AARG collaborates with CHOP to design, develop and build accessible facilities and drive accessibility improvements to the work environment.

Multicultural Professionals Network (MPN)

MPN is a diverse group of employees representing multiple racial, cultural and ethnic groups seeking to foster a positive work environment that supports employees, patients and patient-families of all ethnicities. Through partnerships with various internal and external business units, the group leads efforts around continuing education and professional development, recruitment and retention.

The Multicultural Professional Network serves as an outreach and advocacy vehicle throughout CHOP and the greater Philadelphia region — positioning CHOP as an employer of choice among diverse populations.


Pride@CHOP is an employee network that works to foster a positive work environment that supports employees, patients and patient-families who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ), and our allies (non-LGBT advocates).

By leading efforts to provide the CHOP community with continuing education regarding LGBTQ issues, Pride@CHOP contributes to the success of CHOP by supporting and creating a welcoming, anti-bullying workplace that promotes and values inclusion.
