Improving economic opportunity for older workers

In this webinar, leading labor experts discuss challenges to work at older ages—including discrimination, access to training, and locating a suitable job—while also proposing promising policy reforms. The webinar is divided into two panels. The first panel, moderated by Brookings senior fellow Martin Baily, features former Acting Labor Secretary Seth Harris and UC-Irvine economics professor David Neumark. The second panel, moderated by Kellogg School of Management professor Ben Harris, features Upjohn Institute research director Susan Houseman and Harvard University research associate Beth Truesdale.
