Traditional retirement is no longer affordable or desirable for an increasing number of baby boomers. Inadequate retirement savings, ongoing responsibilities to aging parents and adult children, plus a need to stay engaged with work and life, are prompting more and more people to try to extend their careers past 65, with, in many cases, no plan to retire at all. But the economy is pushing back, with antiquated policies, unfounded beliefs and ageism erecting obstacles and discouraging older workers from staying in the workforce. With support from the four baby boomer classes at this year’s Reunion, John Tarnoff ’73, a former entertainment industry exec who reinvented his own career, will discuss the takeaways from his 2017 author, Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Job Over 50, and engage with fellow boomer alumni who have successfully made their own transitions to second-act careers: Tom Cliff ’68, Bill Woolverton ’73, P’17,’12, David Whitman ’78 and Danny Bernstein ’83. Presented by the Classes of 1968, 1973, 1978 and 1983.
