Conference will shape the future of work for women 50+
Albert J. Rizzi, CEO and founder of My Blind Spot, will join other leaders from the public, private and civic sectors for the first ever Inclusion by Design conference. Its purpose is to provide a platform for women 50+ and business leaders to meet, learn new skills, form relationships, and brainstorm strategies and solutions for collaboratively building the future.
“I’m very happy to be part of this very important conference,” said Rizzi. “Women 50+ are one of the great untapped resources in the American job market. Just as with the disability community, we need to change the narrative about the value they bring and find more effective solutions for their inclusion in the workplace.”
Rizzi is scheduled to speak on Friday, October 24, at 11:45 a.m., in a panel discussion, “Personal Stories: Why we still have a long way to go.” Other scheduled panelists are Leslie Faerstein, executive director of amazing.community and venture capitalist, Jennifer Jordan. It will be moderated by Paul Rubenstein, Chief People Officer at Visier, Inc.
The Inclusion by Design conference will be held on October 23-24, at PwC, 300 Madison Ave, New York, N.Y.
