Canada’s ageing workforce is brimming with untapped potential. But one of the biggest obstacles to reaching that potential are myths about older workers and their place in the workforce.
If you are "retired", approaching retirement age, looking to build on your years of experience to inform your next career, or just interested in how the future of work is being redefined, please add your voice to this important conversation. Join Lisa Taylor, a North American expert on the future of work and shifting demographics, and Helen Hirsh Spence, Founder of the Top 60 over 60, in a casual, interactive session and networking opportunity on May 9 at 6pm at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Councillors' Lounge, 2nd Floor.
Lisa will share information about the Boomer workforce, the latest trends and facts impacting today's multi-generational workforce, and bust common myths. She will shed light on the importance of life-long learning and why cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset is key. Lisa will also talk about why new initiatives, such as the Top 60 Over 60, are so important to shift media headlines from sensational, yet false, click-bait to real-life examples of later life entrepreneurialism and intergenerational collaboration.
Light refreshments will be offered. Parking is free on the street and available underground. City Hall is easily accessible with public transportation, on foot and by bike.
