We are thrilled to highlight more speakers who will be joining us at the highly anticipated Equity Summit 2023. Unlike other workforce and aging conferences, the Equity Summit is focused solely on the issues impacting the community you care most about – older workers, especially those living in historically underserved communities.
Our speakers will explore strategies for increasing access to education and training, as well as ways to eliminate discriminatory practices in the workplace during the “Economic Equity for our Nation’s Workers” panel.
