Type: Webinar

Sponsored by: Insight Center for Community Economic Development and NCOA

Rigorous research has demonstrated that regional, industry-focused workforce partnerships, or “sector initiatives,” can be highly effective at improving the employment and earnings of low-income people. Until now, however, the sector approach has not been widely applied to helping older adults.

Join us for an informative and interactive webinar about a new concept: the mature worker sector initiative.

Panelists:

  • Jim Torrens and Susie Smith, Insight Center for Community Economic Development
  • Barry Lott and Roger Leahy, NCOA
  • Karim Bouris, MAAC Project

Discover:

  • What is a “mature worker sector initiative” and the process by which such an initiative may be developed.
  • Results and lessons learned from a recent pilot project connecting older adults with jobs in healthcare in New Jersey.
  • Findings from research involving mature job-seekers, healthcare employers, and service providers in San Diego.
