Reinforcing our values through Employee Resource Groups at Ansys


As a global simulation software company that has grown exponentially since our inception over 50 years ago, we believe that an inclusive workforce plays a critical role in engaging our employees and meeting the challenges of our global customers across many markets. We needed to build a sense of belonging for all employees to thrive and to inform our business on ways to attract, retain, and engage our employees globally.


We formed employee resource groups (ERGs) as self-organized, executive-sponsored networks across all regions at Ansys that enable employees with common backgrounds and experiences to build communities and inform our business strategies. ERGs at Ansys are open to all employees, including allies and sponsors, and we have ERGs in nearly every country across Ansys.


We have seven thriving ERGs, which currently include Women in Tech, Ansys Pride Alliance, Ansys Black Employee Network, (dis)Ability Network at Ansys, Veterans at Ansys, Ansys Latino Connection, and our newest ERG, the Ansys Early Career Professionals. They engage on a global scale to build communities, provide valuable insight on talent attraction and retention strategies, and generate growth and development opportunities for our employees across the world. Our ERGs also inform our business strategy by completing business impact projects around product design and market outreach. They embody our core values of: Be Open, Be Courageous, Be Generous, and Be You.


Employee Resource Groups are an integral part of our culture at Ansys and play a vital role in helping to sustain and grow an environment where our employees find community, grow together, and advance our mission. Our ERG leaders in partnership with our executive sponsors have helped employees of all backgrounds and experiences thrive and find opportunities to contribute across our global company.
