Presented by Invest Ottawa partner, Cowan Insurance
Many organizations are looking to expand their diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. We now have the tightest labour market in recent history, and employee attraction and retention is front and centre. There is a growing need to support employee health – both physical and mental. Together, we will discuss if benefits plans are meeting the needs of those belonging to diverse communities and what changes could be made to make plans more inclusive.
