Realize the Value of Building Equity into Your Employee Benefits

Webinar • Thursday, August 26, 2021 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE


Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) have become major workplace priorities, especially for associations and nonprofits. A key step in building equity is to revisit your employer-sponsored benefits program, including your health benefit plan and retirement plan.

Traditional insurance plans have premiums, deductibles, copays, and coinsurance that frequently create barriers to care and use of services.

Replacing these barriers with a more equitable program can improve the health and well-being of your workforce …and your organization. Join us for this upcoming webinar to learn how to leverage your employer-sponsored health insurance spend to enhance health equity, your retirement plan, and overall benefits package.
