If 50 is the new 40, are our ‘golden years’ getting further away? With everything going on in the world, how golden will they be?

The entire world has changed in recent months. Women, already disproportionately impacted by the effects of COVID-19, will face particular challenges as we age. Now is the time to focus your approach to living in the present while planning for the future.

We have called in some of the world’s leading experts on women and aging to help us deliver this two-hour working session designed exclusively for women over 50. We will:

  • share themes, patterns and approaches that women over 50 have used to be their best selves and guide their way of living and being;
  • reflect on the experiences that have shaped our lives;
  • make sense of our current context; and,
  • help guide possible paths forward.


The session itself is two hours. We’re also asking that you complete a self-reflection questionnaire in advance. This will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

Participants who submit their questionnaires by October 12, 2020 will receive a personalized report before the session. An anonymized roll-up report with themes and patterns will be discussed in the session.
