Your Retirement Won’t Come with a Road Map – Carol Hymowitz

As an author and journalist, Carol Hymowitz has a unique perspective on the world of work, longevity and how some savvy employers are wising up and leveraging older workers. Recently a visiting scholar at Stanford’s Center on Longevity, Carol was formerly an Editor at Large at Bloomberg, and a Senior Editor and columnist at the Wall Street Journal, where she spent most of her journalism career.

She shares her insights on her journey, what’s surprised her so far and how a co-worker played a role in her decision-making.
