The world of work is changing. How can workers adapt to the challenges of today and be prepared for the workplace of tomorrow? We are facing a new work reality. What trends define that reality? How can those who have lost their jobs find high-quality new jobs? What can we do about the persistent long-term unemployment that continues to affect older people?

Future of Work@50+ is a multiyear initiative that will discuss the problem areas, highlight what we have learned and, most important, suggest policy solutions to ensure that older Americans have access to good-quality jobs and develop the skills they need to retain or obtain them.
