TechOver40: Building a Workplace that Values Experienced Workers

An often overlooked component of diversity is age and companies are finally waking up to the value of the humility, emotional intelligence, and wisdom that come with experience.  

Help your company build a workplace that leverages the unique value of older workers by learning from leaders who have built programs and initiatives to highlight this critical group.  Learn how to focus on the opportunities to create a more meaningful multigenerational workplace so employees of all ages can have an enriching experience.

Chip Conley, Bay Area luminary and former Head of Global Hospitality at Airbnb will share his vision of the human skills that mid-career workers possess--like good judgment, specialized knowledge, and the ability to collaborate and coach presented in his recent book Wisdom@Work:  The Making of a Modern Elder. Following his discussion, we will be joined by Leaders who will share practical ideas for building a workplace that leverages experienced mindsets through reciprical mentorship, employee resource groups, reskilling for all ages and job sharing.

Don't miss this paradigm-shifting event!

All attendees will receive a copy of Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder
