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.

    A constant issue in our workplace … and hitting home, too! At 30 yrs with my employer, I am # 142 of # 813 among salaried employees. That means there are 141 salaried employees with 30+ yrs still working here. We ARE aging IN the workplace!

    Thanks for idliuncng my blog, Secrets to Health and Aging.I work hard to give readers reliable information. I received a post masters in gerontology 25 years ago and aging remains my passion.Resurrecting an old blog, Upside of Aging, in a week or two. This will focus on aging and the aging brain/mind. I’m constantly amazed at how much we learn about what goes on from the neck up and how much we still don’t know!Thanks again.Ruthan Brodsky
