Employee Resource Groups
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) reflect the diverse communities and cultures celebrated throughout our organization. OMERS ERGs are part of the foundation of our inclusive culture; they activate our Inclusion & Diversity strategy by creating a sense of community, building awareness and education, and celebrating our sense of belonging.
Our Employee Resource Groups are inclusive of all people and welcome individuals who identify as well as allies alike.
