Recognizing the impact of employment as a common source of productivity, promoting personal growth and confidence, Leslie Morrison Faerstein and Paula Barrios Sanchez examine the subtle and systemic context of discrimination, particularly as it applies to women over 50 facing the unique challenges of adaptation to a new workplace environment. Confronting a gap in work history after staying home with family, suffering from an illness or just needing a break, Leslie and Paula share the Amazing Community story of reaching out to this population, and building resources to understand and address this shared experience.
From resume writing to the ever- shifting landscape of networking, Amazing Community aims to empower older women with confidence and skills to conquer the anxiety, overwhelm and immobilization that may stem from these new social and technological realities, as well as educate mental health professionals about techniques and resources available to help clients overcome intimidation and begin to implement transformation. Participants will enjoy an overview of key considerations surrounding moving from fear to action, connecting with meaning and purpose, and removing barriers to a career “restart”.
