AGEWORKS™ is a company committed to reducing the ageism stigma and debunking myths about older people in both the workplace and the marketplace. AGEWORKS™ not only raises awareness of issues associated with ageism but has introduced tangible initiatives to celebrate companies who engage in age-friendly business and employee practices, build intergenerational respect and to create employment opportunities for people 50+ through seminars, workshops, services and programs.
While many see the aging population as a problem, we see it as an opportunity to positively impact the Canadian economy and the lives of generations to come by maximizing the skills, talents, experience and buying power of boomers. We believe that "age works" to the advantage of business and society at large.
AGEWORKS™ TOP 50 OVER 50
Everyone has heard about The Top 30 Over 30. We believe that celebrating the accomplishments of people over 50 is just as important; that age does not define an individual and what we can and cannot do. We will be recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of successful individuals over 50; individuals who have reinvented themselves, who have found their true purpose and calling and who have followed the road less travelled.
Our 2017 winners have been chosen. It was a difficult decision for our judges to choose the Top 5 from all the nominations that we received. Some of our Top 50 Over 50 will be profiled on our website in the new year.
Their stories are inspirational and we're proud to have offered our Top 50 Over 50 as a venue to profile amazing individuals in Canada who have reinvented themselves or followed their passion.
