Mature Workers Panel Discussion
January 27, 2022 , 10:30 am – 12:00 pm PST
Mature Workers: Vital to Today’s Diverse Labor Force
An online panel discussion to address the stigma surrounding mature workers.
Are you age 50 and up and looking to shift careers or wanting to re-enter the workforce?
Mature workers (age 50+) are an important part of today’s workforce, offering experience and abilities that are valuable to employers. This is a great time for mature workers to be looking for work—it’s more of a job-seekers market right now, and employers need skilled, good people.
Join County Supervisor Joe Simitian and a panel of Silicon Valley labor market specialists to discuss how to overcome potential age stereotypes, upgrade skill sets, and build confidence to thrive within the workforce.
