Public Pension Workforce Update: How DEI Policies Impact Recruitment & Retention

Start Date: 6/13/2024 1:00 PM EDT
End Date: 6/13/2024 2:00 PM EDT

This June, NCPERS will host a 1-hour webinar discussing how diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies can impact recruitment and retention rates in the workplace. In honor of Pride Month, you’ll hear from a panel of speakers on industry trends related to recruitment and retention, with a particular emphasis on how public pension organizations can foster inclusivity and compensation equality. We've recruited a distinguished panel of experts to share insights and discuss how they support their LGBTQ+ workforce and members through various initiatives.

· Todd Sears, CEO of Out Leadership, will share insights into their latest research on the LGBTQ+ workforce and how public pensions can support this key talent cohort.
· Taylor Sprague, senior compensation consultant for CBIZ, will discuss broader trends around compensation and benefits offerings, drawing insights from the Public Pension Compensation Survey.
· Michelle Tucker, human resources director at CalPERS, will provide insights into the fund’s DEI strategy and the role it plays in their broader recruitment and retention efforts, particularly with the LGBTQ+ community.
