Pre-registration is required. Attendees must also be registered for the Aging in America Conference. 

Many women in America aged 50 and older choose to continue working to maintain their lifestyles. How will they do this, considering the current economic challenges of under-employment coupled with 30 or 40 years of additional life expectancy?

Older women are consumers, decision-makers and key members of the workforce. Health and economic security are two of their top priorities. Women make 58% of the online retail purchases, make 80% of healthcare decisions, and make up 44% of NFL fans! Amazon’s new 50+ Active and Healthy Living Store now targets older adults with thousands of items.

What do businesses and employers need to know about what older women want and the value they bring as employees and consumers? Learn the answers to these questions and more by attending this dynamic summit!
