Legal Lens on Women’s Health: Age and Your Career

Archive Now Available!

Barbra H. Miller, Rachel L. Blumenfeld and Pamela Miehls

Career progression can be different for women than for men. Our careers may not follow a linear path and can be influenced by personal life stages like motherhood and caring for elderly parents. Realizing that society typically measures success at work and in life by our age, what are some of the outdated age-related expectations for women, versus what is actually realistic and healthy now?

Join our panel of experts as we discuss career, cognitive and physical changes and expectations at various life stages, legal considerations and how to thrive in today’s workplace.

Topics include:

What obstacles do women face during their career progression and how can they overcome these obstacles?

Women are living longer and working longer. How can women achieve longevity in their health and well-being from early on?

What happens in Ontario in regards to retirement? How have the laws and Human Rights Code changed retirement?

What duties do employers have regarding accommodation for women at different stages of life?

The importance of estate and succession planning and general tips on how to put an effective plan in place.
