AIMS Colorado

Colorado | Age-Inclusive Management Strategies Initiative

AIMS Colorado strives to transform the future of the state's aging workforce by helping employers to implement strategies to recruit and retain experienced employees (age 50+). This state project assesses how Colorado's employers are addressing the needs and preferences of experienced employees, disseminates and facilitates implementation of best practices for becoming an age-friendly employer, and initiates a state-wide public awareness campaign of pathways to success. It was multi-year project running from 2019 to 2022, and previously named Colorado's Above-Fifty Employment Strategies or CAFES.


Our conferences showcase the value of experienced employees who are age 50+ and the business opportunities for employers across the state of Colorado. National aging and work experts, local Colorado officials, and local nonprofits convene together to share insights and strategies for employers to foster age-inclusive workplaces.

Next50 is a Colorado-based national foundation that works toward a society that values aging and makes growing older an empowering, fulfilling experience. Today, our systems in the U.S. don't prioritize our economic well-being as we age, which causes widespread economic hardship for older adults and their families. That's why we focus on funding innovative and equitable programs that create economic opportunity for older adults, especially in low-income communities and communities of color. We fund programming in three key areas: ending age-related bias and discrimination; advancing digital equity so technology is available to all; and making it possible for people to age where they want to live.
