12. Are You Age Ready? | Age Pioneers Webinar
Wed Oct 4, 10:30AM

Do You Know How Age-Inclusive You Are?

In the first of our new series of Age Pioneers events, we will share our brand-new solution that helps you assess your level of age inclusivity within your organisation and what you need to do to unlock the value of an ageing population.

Age Pioneers is an action panel of cross-sector HRDs and heads of D&I. It includes Bank of Ireland, Unilever, EY, Capita, dentsu and Boots. We have a core group of Action Panel members that picks apart a single topic in relation to age inclusion.

The webinar is 90 minutes long and will include expert guests sharing their experiences and answering questions. The audience is invited to participate in a lively discussion with the panel and 55/Redefined CEO Lyndsey Simpson following the guest interviews. Attendees are welcome to ask questions and share their own experiences and learnings during this interactive session. The webinar will be recorded and made available to attendees at a later date.
