Thursday, June 10, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Members & guests–free. To RSVP, please scroll down. The day before the event, registered attendees will receive a confirmation email with a link to join via Zoom.

Regardless of your age, ageism in the workplace will someday unexpectedly have a destructive impact on your life unless we solve the problem. Lou Reyes, publisher of Over50tv on YouTube, will talk about how ageism in the workplace is ravaging the lives of people over 50 and how this destructive behavior is impacting you and your future. Lou will discuss non-legal solutions and constructive steps that can enable you to thrive now and in the future.

Virtual Cocktail Party
Following a presentation and live Q&A with Lou, continue the discussion by joining us for a virtual cocktail party to network, share your thoughts, and connect with fellow attendees (no RSVP required; all attendees who register for the program will automatically be able to join the cocktail party).
