Employer Education Week

Educational. Interactive. Just for you.

The OMERS Pension Education & Relationship Management team was delighted to host our second annual Employer Education Week. The virtual conference took place the week of October 25 and featured something for everyone!    

Sessions covered everything from popular administration topics to our investment entities, and featured OMERS and Oxford senior leaders who shared how we’re investing on behalf of our members.
