The Plexus Education Foundation (PEF) was founded in December 2008 as a 501(c)(3) educational organization. The mission of the Foundation is to improve the workplace environment for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender individuals through education, research and development resulting in enrichment of the entire community.
With the support of the Key Foundation and Key Bank, PEF hosts Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender members of existing and emerging employee resource groups (ERGs). The ERG Series has included employees from 15 different companies and organizations. In addition, PEF is proud to have assisted in the formation of three new ERGs in the past few years. The ERG Series was established to provide a forum for existing and prospective ERG members and leaders to exchange ideas and support the initiatives that each of them were executing in their respective organizations. The ERG Series has evolved at the request of the various ERGs to be a leadership forum that meets on a regular basis to discuss topics of mutual concern and interest.
The Foundation also provides speakers and training on the topic of LGBT Workplace Inclusion to facilitate organizations developing strategies and actions to enhance the goal of LGBT diversity in their organizations.
