Concordia is proud to announce that AARP is joining its community as a 2021 Annual Summit Lead Programming Partner.
AARP is the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering people 50 and older to choose how they live as they age. The joint efforts between Concordia and AARP will seek to engage key stakeholders, subject matter experts, and thought leaders to grow AARP’s Living, Learning & Earning Longer Initiative. A collaboration between AARP, the World Economic Forum, OECD, and 50 employers, this initiative is designed to identify and share multigenerational, inclusive workforce practices. Concordia and AARP will also seek to grow the organization’s Growing With Age digital platform, which gives employers the necessary tools, research, and resources to help them develop better practices to build their multigenerational workforce.
“It’s crucial that we change the narrative around age inclusion, particularly in the workforce,” commented Matthew Swift, Co-Founder & CEO of Concordia. “I’m delighted to welcome AARP to our community and look forward to a very interesting discussion on the Main Stage of our 2021 Annual Summit. AARP is doing some much-needed work to raise awareness around the impact of an older workforce on economic growth and to equip companies with the knowledge needed to build better practices.”
“Research shows that multigenerational workforces are more productive, better performing, and more innovative. As people live and work longer, AARP is committed to helping businesses and employees reap these benefits and thrive in workplace cultures that maximize diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Edna Kane-Williams, AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer.
