Did you know there's a way to know in advance if an employer understands the value of your experience? There's a growing list of employers that look for and hire people over 50.
In this Age-Friendly Employer Forum (our sixth), you'll learn exactly what "age-friendly" means and how employers are qualified as age-friendly from Tim Driver, Age-Friendly Institute, and Kara Cohen, AARP Massachusetts.
You'll also meet representatives from age-friendly employers, who will describe the types of jobs they have available and why they value people over 50 in their workplaces. They'll offer tips about how to navigate the job search process to find work at age-friendly employers.
The Forum will be moderated by Emily Shea, Commissioner of Boston's Age Strong Commission. In this role, she led the effort for Boston's designation as an Age-Friendly City by the World Health Organization and AARP. The Commission serves as Boston's Area Agency on Aging and Council on Aging and sets the city's direction for successful aging of its residents. Emily has an MSW, MPH and Certificate in Gerontology from Boston University and a BA from St. Micheal's College.
This Age-Friendly Employer Forum is hosted by Encore Boston Network and brought to you in collaboration with AARP Massachusetts, Age Strong and Age-Friendly Boston, Age-Friendly Institute, 50+ Job Seekers of MA, Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, and Operation ABLE.
