BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enrich Life Over 50 (ELO50) will launch the first of its 27 chapters in the Boston metropolitan area on June 10. With more than 109 million Americans 50 years old and older (50+), this national grassroots movement’s mission is to recognize their ability to contribute to economic growth as a substantial number of boomers and seniors now plan to work past the traditional retirement age of 65.
“We’re establishing our first chapter in Boston to celebrate the phenomenal advantages of aging, and to challenge the negative stereotypes about older workers,” said ELO50 founder and human resources expert William Zinke, 88. “With an average job tenure more than three times that of people 20 to 34, older Americans are living longer, working more effectively and in many cases providing more workplace value than their millennial counterparts.”
When: Wednesday, June 10, 5:45 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Where: Bethany Congregational Church, 18 Spear St., Quincy, MA 02169
Register: $50 event fee (applied to annual ELO50 membership: https://www.elo50.com/register/); Registration closes June 5.
About Enrich Life Over 50
With the mission to persuade America that people 50+ are significant contributors, and to reverse the pervasively negative feelings about ageism, Zinke founded ELO50 in 2014 to regenerate millions of people 50+ in their extended longevity. With the support of academic and business leaders, including William H. Webster, 91, chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council and former director of the FBI and CIA at different times, ELO50 is forming chapters in 27 major U.S. cities to redefine retirement and to integrate people over 50 more effectively into the nation’s economic and social fabric.
