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.

AGE-WELL NCE Inc. (http://www.agewell-nce.ca/) is a pan-Canadian network of industry, non-profit organizations, government, care providers, end-users, and academic partners working to drive innovation and create technologies and services that benefit older adults and caregivers. Its vision is to harness and build upon the potential of emerging and advanced technologies in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), e-health, information communication technologies (ICTs), and mobile technologies to stimulate technological, social, and policy innovation. AGE-WELL is funded through the federal Networks of Centres of Excellence program.
