Thriving in Retirement: Lessons from Baby Boomer Women

Author(s): Coon, Anne; Feuerherm, Judith
Contributors: Coon, Anne; Feuerherm, Judith
Abstract:

This important book shares insights derived from surveys, interviews, and focus groups conducted with a diverse group of first-wave Baby Boomer female professionals (born 1946–1956). These individuals changed the workplace in the 1970s and are now changing views of retirement.


• Provides a model for reflection to help Baby Boomer professional women understand who they are, their strengths and interests, and what they want to do as next steps when they leave their full-time careers

• Offers compelling stories from women of a range of ethnic and geographic backgrounds, professions, and employment statuses as well as races, sexual orientations, and marital statuses to represent a bright, engaged cohort of women to whom readers can relate as colleagues

• Asserts a new, future-oriented concept of retirement, where individuals draw on the strengths and expertise of their careers while actively engaging with others and exploring interests and passions they may have set aside in the past
