Equitable Recovery Series: Older Workers
Our sister innovation hub, CWI Labs, partnered with WorkingNation to convene experts in workforce development, labor economics, aging, racial equity and policy to discuss the challenges before our Nation. The third episode of our series, featuring Ruth Finkelstein, discusses how COVID-19 fears and misinformation complicate efforts for older workers to reenter the workforce and what employers and policy makers can do to ensure that older workers are included in our economic recovery.
Who Should Delay Returning to Work?
Research by the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging disproves the idea that older adults are at greater risk of getting seriously ill or dying of COVID-19. In reality, healthy older people under age 85 are at lower risk than many younger people with underlying conditions. The strategy for the creation of a safer in-person workplace is to adopt both environmental and individual precautions to reduce exposure and infection for all workers, rather than isolate categories of workers based on their individual characteristics.
Critical Discussions on an Equitable Recovery
The Center for Workforce Inclusion is excited to contribute our expertise on older workers to WorkingNation's digital magazine, Inquire Within. This critical publication features stories about people and organizations who are striving to ensure all workers have the opportunity to obtain economic opportunity.
