Posted on December 10, 2016

Áine Ní Léime, a Marie Sklodowska Curie Research Fellow funded by the European Framework Programme 7, shared the preliminary results of a project conducted in the CWRU Department of Sociology entitled Gender, Older Workers and the Lifecourse (GENDOWL). The research focused on the experiences and the views of workers aged 50 and over in different occupations in relation to extending their working lives. The results were presented at a Social Justice Institute Policy Seminar titled “Is Extending Working Life the Best Response to Population Aging for All Workers?” The seminar was preceded by a keynote address by Debra Street, Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology, University of Buffalo and followed by small group policy suggestions and a panel discussion.
