Combating Ageism to Improve Access to Employment is the second webinar of the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) Post-Conference Education Webinar Series and throughout the interactive presentation will explore the importance of supporting an ageing workforce, as well as outline the actions that need to be taken to ensure that employers and individuals can reap the benefits of longer working lives.
This webinar is a part of the series’ first learning program: Combating Ageism. This theme was developed because discrimination against individuals based on their age has serious consequences on many aspects of an older person’s life, such as health, wellbeing, employment, housing and access to social and care systems, and needs to be addressed in both policy and practice.
Monday 25 February 2019, 9:00 – 10:00 am EST
With a rapidly ageing global population, addressing inequalities and harnessing the opportunities that older people experience is of great importance. In August 2018, the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) hosted the 14th Global Conference on Ageing in Toronto, Canada, with 1200 experts gathering from around the world. The theme of this conference was Towards a Decade of Healthy Ageing – From Evidence to Action and the IFA is compelled to mobilize the knowledge and learning from this conference with its members and beyond. To ensure that evidence continues to be translated following the conference, the IFA is hosting a Post-Conference Education Webinar Series to mobilize conference themes and presentations to a larger audience.
