Over 70 researchers and policymakers registered for the inaugural CEPAR Online Symposium on Mature Workers in Organisations on 26 May. Guest speaker Professor Philip Taylor of the Federation University (and Steering Committee member of the Sloan Research Network on Aging & Work) presented on older women’s experiences of work and the factors affecting their labour market engagement, drawing from findings of the Australian Research Council (ARC) funded ‘Retiring women’ study.
In his presentation, he provided evidence from quantitative surveys of Australian older working women to challenge myths concerning their employment and to demonstrate the complexity of their engagement with the labour market.
