The population in Estonia as well as Europe in general is ageing rapidly. For many, a longer life span also means a longer period of active engagement in the job market. On the other hand, age-based stigmatization is not rare in the society and the youngest as well as the oldest generations in the job market state that discrimination on the basis of age is a serious problem. At the conference “Age is but a number! What about on the job market?”, taking place on March 21st in Tallinn, we will discuss the topic of age and the labour market with the best experts in the field and offer practical advice for employers on how to create a work environment which respects all generations.
The keynote speech will be held by the specialist in work strategies for millennials Ana Sarmiento (Think Millennial). Sarmiento is a leadership expert and a coach, who mainly lives an works in Spain, but advises companies all over the world. Sarmiento helps leaders and businesses in understanding the expectations of the millennial generation and advises employers who wish to create a workplace where everybody, despite their birth year, has similar opportunities for development and well-being. Her clients include BMW and Mini, Designit and BNP Paribas.
The conference is a part of the process of acknowledgement of the first companies to receive the Estonian Diversity Label. The conference is organised by Estonian Human Rights Centre in collaboration with the Estonian Diversity Charter and Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia.
