Get Involved with Careers in Aging Week 2019!

For the first time, LeadingAge is partnering with the Gerontological Society of America, the American Health Care Association (AHCA)/National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), and Argentum on Careers in Aging Week, to be held from March 3-9, 2019.

The goal of Careers in Aging Week is to allow member organizations to make students aware of the rich variety of jobs in the field of aging services. LeadingAge is asking members to invite students to their organizations for different events or reach out to local schools and ask to talk to students about our field. Last year, LeadingAge Kansas held a successful Careers in Aging Day, and many of their resources have been made available for use this year.

During the week of March 3rd, please use LeadingAge’s resources, social media tools, and clips of interviews from team members from a wide variety of careers (e.g., culinary, communications, information technology, clinical care, etc.) To access the resources, which LeadingAge is updating on a regular basis, click here.

Any questions on Careers in Aging Week may be directed to Susan Hildebrandt, LeadingAge’s Vice President of Workforce Initiatives, at shildebrandt@leadingage.org.
