Experience Matters, a Phoenix organization that connects experienced adults with nonprofits to apply their talents, is holding a luncheon on October 27 featuring news correspondent and journalist Jane Pauley.
A Conversation with Jane Pauley will be held at the Arizona Biltmore. Adding to her roles as an anchor on NBC Nightly News, host of the Today Show and co-host of Dateline NBC, Pauley is now a leading spokesperson for the generation of baby boomers who are reinventing the way they live and work. Her most recent book, Your Life Calling, illustrates how many adults are setting the stage for the second-half of life in more fulfilling and unconventional ways.
The event will honor the hundreds of adults across Maricopa County who lend their skills, expertise and talents to nonprofits through Experience Matters and beyond. And, Intel will be honored for its unprecedented investment in the community through an innovative program that transitions employees, age 55+, into meaningful work in the nonprofit sector.
Also at the event, Experience Matters will announce the winner of its Booming with Purpose: Tell Us Your Story competition in which participants submit stories, videos and slide shows demonstrating inventive ways they’ve made an impact in Arizona as part of their second act. Five finalists will attend the luncheon and the winner will share his/her story on stage with Pauley and Strong on October 27. Deadline for submitting videos on Experience Matters’ website is October 13.
“As a leader in reimagining the best years of your life, Jane Pauley will inspire, invigorate and energize Arizona’s baby boomers in committing to create a positive impact through encore careers,” said Nora Hannah, CEO of Experience Matters. “Working together, we can harness the talents and skills of a generation to build a stronger, more vibrant community.”
