“More than half of women over 50 are working for pay, according to the nearly 1,000 Smithies who’ve answered our surveys,” say business consultants and Smith ’73 alumnae Debbie Ferro Burke and Diane Okrent. Following up on their popular alumnae webinar, "Smith Women Over 60," Debbie and Diane offer a new survey and webinar that takes a close look at women as they work in their 50's, 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond. Gathering information from women and employers, this survey and webinar takes a fresh look at success strategies as well as experiences, attitudes, needs and expectations about working later in life.
