6–8pm October 4th, 2019
6–7 pm Senator’s Introduction, Panel, and Forum
7–8 pm: Job Fair and Meet & Greet:
Senator Robert Jackson will host leading organizations serving the mature workforce in a forum and job fair for constituents 55 and over, the first event of its kind in the country. Senator Jackson is committed to combating rampant ageism in hiring by focusing on this population that often faces discrimination. Representatives from national advocacy group AARP, information hub and event organizer for over-50s Next for Me, and intergenerational homeshare matching service Silvernest join Senator Jackson for a forum discussing the challenges facing older job applicants and how to successfully market during the hiring process the benefits these workers can bring to a company. In the second half of the program, employers committed to hiring from the mature workforce will meet and greet attendees.
