Sociologist leads program to help boomers land encore careers

It's among the most persistent questions to dog workers at or near retirement: What comes next? Phyllis Moen wants to help. The University of Minnesota sociology professor believes too few baby boomers interested in an encore career know how to answer that question. At the same time, too few businesses and communities know how to take advantage of their skills and experience. This fall, Moen, author of the 2016 book "Encore Adulthood: Boomers on the Edge of Risk, Renewal and Purpose," launched a program for those 50 and older to try to bridge that divide. Moen sees the program, called the Advanced Careers Initiative, as part of a broader goal to change the way people think about using colleges and universities as they get older.
