Age Pioneers #11: Innovations in Learning

In our last session before the summer break, we spoke with three organisations that are innovating learning and development in the workplace.

Age Pioneers is an action panel of cross-sector HRDs and heads of D&I. It includes the likes of Bank of Ireland, Unilever, EY, Capita, Dentsu and Boots. We have a core group that attends each month and picks apart a single topic in relation to age inclusion. We use the first 30 minutes to interview our panel on the topic to share their experience and have a Q&A (which becomes this published article). For the next hour, the group becomes the panel and debates the topic under Chatham House rules in an unrecorded event, to allow peer networking and collaboration.

It's Time to Embrace Inclusive Learning

Joining Lyndsey Simpson, 55/Redefined’s founder and CEO, our guest speakers were:

Simon Tindall, Director of Skills and Innovation at The Open University. Simon has extensive experience in education and research, having worked at Sun Microsystems supporting government and corporate education programmes, and at Desire 2 Learn, a Canadian e-learning business, helping organisations reshape the future of education and work. At The Open University, Simon builds strategic partnerships with companies (nationally and internationally) to support learning and research.
