Have you noticed how much pop culture has changed our views on aging recently? Jennifer Lopez is 52 and is still leading romantic comedies. The women of the Sex and the City sequel series And Just Like That are the same ages as Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose in the beginning of Golden Girls (early 50s).
We’re staying younger longer!
Frankly, until recently, most Americans retired in their early 60s and equated the end of a successful career with that milestone.
No more. Just as our view on women in their 50s has drastically changed from the era of Golden Girls, we want to stay in the game longer. We want to leave a mark, make a difference, and continue to earn.
Aging and Our Careers
If you’ve been following us for awhile, you know that we’re all about shifting the narrative on aging. Our lives don’t have to “end” with retirement nor do we have to accept a different place in the workplace.
A few weeks ago, we spoke with Janine Vanderburg of Changing the Narrative about how to tackle ageism.
