Explorations Series: Older Workers: Rights, Innovation and Inclusion

The Albury/Wodonga Chapter of the Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG)
invites you to attend a free public lecture to hear about:

Older Workers - Rights, Innovation and Inclusion
The Honourable Dr Kay Patterson AO
Age Discrimination Commissioner

Free public lecture
6.00pm - 7.00pm, Tuesday 13 February 2018

Followed by light refreshments
Charles Sturt University Albury-Wodonga, Building 751, Room 104
CD Blake Auditorium, Elizabeth Mitchell Drive, Car Park 2

Work force trends and government policy tell us we will need to work longer
before achieving a well-earned retirement. At the same time many older workers
report experiencing discrimination in their search for jobs.

Take this opportunity to meet Dr Kay Patterson and hear about how we might resolve this dilemma.
Dr Patterson will also discuss innovative opportunities for promoting the
rights of older workers and creating an inclusive and productive work force.

We are inviting you to attend the Explorations Series public lecture
co-hosted by the Australian Association of Gerontology Albury Wodonga Rural Chapter and
in association with John Richards Initiative: Research into Rural Ageing at La Trobe University.

The lecture will be of interest to students and staff of gerontology, human services and social justice, community health, business, justice and education and to members of the community working with or interested in issues impacting older people
.
