Growing the economy post-pandemic requires us to tap into the resourcefulness and experience of all workers, regardless of age. Yet many older workers face stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination because of their age.

Our panelists will discuss how to help people who experience challenges to work: by redressing misconceptions, by co-developing technology solutions, and by advocating for better workplace and public policies.
