Area of Interest: Pensions, Benefits, Investments Format: Web

With the expanded recognition of non-binary and transgender identification in society and at law, pension and benefit plan sponsors are reconsidering how gender impacts program design, delivery and governance.

The female longevity vs pension savings gap is coming under increased scrutiny by DC plan sponsors but what else do plan sponsors need to consider when it comes to gender? How should gender data be collected and used … if at all?

What are the obligations with respect to inclusive design and equitable outcomes? Please join us as pension and benefit experts explore the practical and legal implications of these questions as well as evolving market practices.
