🔹 Still Kicking: Confronting Ageism & Ableism In The Wake of Covid
It doesn’t take much head-scratching to realize that much of our apprehension about growing older is actually about how our minds and bodies will change. In her new talk, Ashton Applewhite urges us to keep scratching, dismantle the dread, and push back! To live is to age, and we age well not by avoiding incapacity but by adapting to it—a powerful, enriching, lifelong process that unites us all.

🔹 Encore Careers – Stories of Reinvention in your 50’s & BEYOND
There’s a growing trend for those in midlife and beyond to leave well-paid jobs for work that is more in line with their passions and more socially worthwhile. This is our time for career reinvention, living our purpose, and finding ways to serve in the post-Pandemic world. This inspiring conversation will feature panelists’ stories of reinvention to shape their purpose-driven “third act” careers and lives.
– With four transformational leaders: Pedro Caceres, Deborah Dugan, Steven Goldstein & Kerry Moynihan

🔹 Resilience for the Ages
“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Betty Friedan
Resilience is a state of being that enables us to withstand life’s inevitable turmoil & to flourish! When the proverbial barn burns down, why do some weep and others say “Now I can see the stars”? In this interactive discussion, you will learn how to build your resilience muscle by making choices that will buttress you during difficult times. Through ancient wisdom, learned behaviors and examples of many who have overcome seemingly insurmountable difficulties, you will be guided to thrive. Gina will invite discussion with participants by asking them to share their own stories of resilience and resources they rely on to cope with change and embrace aging.
– with Gina Vild, best-selling author, health care and government leader and consultant
🔹 Intergenerational Alchemy & Mutual Mentorship
Overcoming intergenerational barriers to inspire creativity, wisdom-sharing and healthy relationships: Scott Powell, a 25-year old “millennial” and Ted Powell, his 61-year old “baby boomer” father share stories and insights regarding their relationship journey from the “parent-child” to the “peer to peer” dynamic. Using self-awareness techniques, while keeping their respective egos in check, Ted and Scott had to navigate some stormy waters to reach a point where Scott confidently challenges Dad’s age-related blind spots and Dad deftly dispenses lifelong learnings and wisdom without hubris, most of the time. And when they mess it up, they know how to clean it up. Join us for an entertaining and interactive discussion that will help you transform your most important intergenerational relationships, whether they be family, work or community-based.
– with Ted Powell, his son Scott and a mother-daughter business owners Katy Lesser and Nina Lesser-Goldsmith.
