Employee Resource Groups

CCA has a number of employee resource groups for our employees who are seeking connection and community. These groups are employee-led and facilitated, and are a space for employees to connect regarding their shared identities, backgrounds and interests. Below are the current employee resource groups at CCA. Employees can also work with Human Resources and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to create new resource groups that are not listed.
