By now, almost everyone has some level of awareness that the aging of our population is anticipated to have profound effects on life during the 21st century. We’ve seen the statistics.
But numbers, alone, don’t tell the story.
For the past several months, researchers and workplace aging experts affiliated with the Sloan Center on Aging & Work have discussed the need to launch a blog which will provide us with a space to address some of the controversies, dilemmas and flashes of brilliance. As with all our work, we will base our commentaries on evidence but we will use the blog to spark conversations and debate.
We will be launching AGEnda on January 11. The topics will range from employer innovation to age bias, from interactions across generations to concerns about the future.
We invite you to join in the discussions. Please do let us know how you think we are doing.
