Finding a job or a new career can be difficult for many people, but it’s especially difficult when we enter our 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. It's then when people typically begin competing with a younger workforce and the aging biases of many employers. And for lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT) older people, this process can be even more complicated since they must often deal with the added barriers of LGBT-bias and discrimination. SAGEWorks tackles these problems head-on—providing training, employment resources and the general job hunting know-how to ensure that LGBT elders obtain the job security and financial stability they need to age successfully.
What is SAGEWorks?
SAGEWorks is a national work readiness program for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender mature workers (ages 40 and older) who need or want to return to the work place. The mission of SAGEWorks is to improve the capacity of LGBT older adults to remain productive, vital and contributing members of the nation's work force.
