Established in 2019, IBERG aspires to provide a safe space for Black employees to connect, collaborate and celebrate their identity. Alongside our allies, IBERG is working to build a more equitable environment both internally and externally through community service, engagement and education.


  • Professional Development

  • Community Service/Engagement

  • Key Initiatives

  • Educational Outreach: Long before COVID, IBERG worked with juniors and seniors at Oakland’s Castlemont High School on interviewing, resume building and scholarship applications. When shelter-in-place began, members kept working with students -- and IBERG took the additional step of partnering with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). IBERG members met with UNCF’s cohort of college students, a majority of whom are seeking science, technology, engineering and math degrees. IBERG hosted an online seminar series to support these students. 

  • Black-Owned Restaurant Outreach: For Black Business Month, IBERG kicked off an initiative to reach out to Black-owned restaurant owners and chefs who are redefining cuisine. We hosted a webinar with Chef Mimi Robinson, a community activist and creator of the first black reality culinary competition, “Bringing It To The Table.”

  • Juneteenth: For Juneteenth, IBERG hosted a Freedom Through Farming Farmer’s Market featuring local Black farmers and vendors and a delivery service for local employees. They also brought in a guest speaker to discuss the importance and impact of sustainability with Black farmers in the US.
