America and American workforces are rapidly diversifying. The recently completed 2020 US Census shows diversity has expanded significantly since the census’ last iteration in 2010.
We acknowledge those changes in the American workforce, and explore different types of diversity present in the workplace. We’ll discuss how you can leverage plan design features to encourage and support participation in the retirement plan. You’ll gain a greater understanding of workplace need for diversity and diverse thinking, suggestions for existing and potential clients, and statistics and anecdotes to help support your recommendations.
