EBN:Older Workers in Transition--Why Work Beyond Retiremt Age? with Dr. Elizabeth Fideler
"Older Workers in Transition" will explore the trends associated with mature adults working in the retirement years. IN the context of changing demographics and the changing modalities of retirement we will discuss the reasons why increasing numbers of women and men are bypassing traditional age and are staying in or returning to the work force. We will consider age diversity, ageism, and age-friendliness in the workplace. We will also look at the impact of the pandemic on older workers, with particular emphasis on gender and social class differences.
Elizabeth Fideler is a highly respected founding member and research fellow at the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College. She is the author of Women Still at Work: Professionals over Sixty and On the Job (2012) and Men Still at Work: Professionals Over 60 and On the Job (2014). Her newest book, Aging, Work, and Retirement (2020) presents the reasons older men and women are staying in the workforce as long as they are able to do so.
Join Encore Boston Network on April 29 at 10:00 to hear Liz Fideler discuss topics of interest to older workers, specifically through the lens of the pandemic.
