Description

Join us for a morning of networking, information and resources in support of Age-Friendly Inclusion. We are excited to bring you Maddy Dychtwald of Age Wave, to talk to us about Mature Workers in the workplace and the impact of Age-Friendly Inclusion in our organizations, communities and economy.



Maddy Dychtwald is an internationally acclaimed author, speaker, and thought leader on the age wave—and how longevity and the ascent of women are transforming the marketplace, the workplace, and retirement. A successful entrepreneur for more than 30 years, she co-founded Age Wave, the world’s leader in understanding and addressing the far-reaching impacts of our aging population. Since then, Maddy and the Age Wave team have worked with more than half of the Fortune 500 in industries ranging from pharmaceuticals and medical technology to financial services and consumer marketing.

She is the author of three books, Cycles: How We Will Live, Work, and Buy (voted Book of the Year by the National Community Colleges Association) , Influence: How Women’s Soaring Economic Power Will Transform Our World for the Better, and the children’s/young readers’ book Gideon’s Dream: A Tale of New Beginnings. Currently, she is writing on a new book that combines her professional and personal interests: Ageless Aging: 50 Simple Hacks to Reboot Your Life.



The Mature Action Worker Team Project is a group of community service providers and stakeholders whose service focus is meaningful employment of Calgarians/Albertans that have come together to help identify the resources needed for workers over the age of 50 who have been moved out of mid-skill jobs and who want to get back into the workforce, probably in a new field.

Backed by funding from the Alberta government Community and Social Services and Labour Grant, this group is working to develop educational tools to support workers over the age of 50 who are currently unemployed. The Project is also aimed at working with organizations to address some of the ways in which they may discourage an age-friendly workplace where mature workers feel comfortable applying for jobs. It is a two-pronged approach to optimize the chances of success for everyone involved.
