Application Deadline: January 8, 2018

Media Training: March 11 – 14, 2018 in Washington, D.C.


The statistics tell the tale: Every day 10,000 Americans turn 65, and 20 percent of people in that age group are employed or looking for work – the highest rate since 1962. Over four days, journalists will learn about older workers and the labor market; new models for retirement; the future of Social Security and retirement savings; the gig economy; workforce discrimination; and how workers’ health impacts all of that. They’ll also learn what other countries are doing that the U.S. isn’t.

Support for this program is provided by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
