GSA’s Careers in Aging Week (CIAW) 2022 is taking place from April 17 to 23. The Society, along with partner organizations, needs your help to raise awareness about the wide-ranging career opportunities in the field of aging.

Check out GSA’s CIAW Week Toolkit for resources on how to get involved and spread the word. CIAW is observed every year by businesses, clinics, coalitions, organizations, universities, colleges, and other parties across the world.

Here are some easy steps you can take:

  • Show your CIAW spirit by using our custom Zoom background during your meetings before and during CIAW.
  • Share your story on social media. Share your knowledge of the field and let people know what career in aging you have chosen and why. GSA’s toolkit includes prepared social media messages and images you can use to elevate your story. (And use the hashtag #CareersInAging.)
  • Share resources. When you visit com, you will find resources such as career tip sheets, online resources from our partner organizations and The Real Faces of Careers in Aging — a series of audio vignettes featuring interviews with professionals currently working in the field of aging.

Your participation allows people to see the diverse career paths in the field of aging!
