A Support Group for Career Women Considering “Retirement”
Women of the Baby Boomer generation are entering new territory. More women of this generation have had careers outside the home than in any previous generation. As these women reach the traditional age of “retirement,” they have questions, concerns and dilemmas, but few role models. Do we need to “retire”? What is “retirement” and what does it mean for career women? If we are healthy, active and engaged in the world, why should we even consider stepping back and “retiring”? What does “retirement” even mean for women of our generation? In this support group for career women, we will explore these questions and begin to identify the next steps in our life’s journeys, whether “retirement,” “rewirement,” or something yet to be defined. This class is part of the Center’s Redefining Aging Initiative.
