How Age, Race & Other Factors Shape Our Options in Later Life
Thursday, November 12, 2020, 2:30 PM until 4:00 PM
Virtual - Webinar
Does the deck get stacked against some people based simply on who they are and where they were born? Sadly, studies show that this is true, and the disadvantage grows when certain identities, including age, are layered one on top of the other. Join us to learn how social position shapes our prospects in later life for purpose and meaning, how it affects health, quality of life and life expectancy, and how the pandemic has worsened the disadvantages already faced by many. Offered by Center on Aging & Work at Boston College, and the Future of Aging Coalition, which includes Encore Boston Network.
