Brown Bag Lecture with Rolene Walker: Moving from Work to Proactive Retirement

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 13:00 to 14:30

What is your true work?  True play?  True study?  True rest?  How can you combine what you are passionate about with something more meaningful?  How do you make room for new ideas and new friends?  You have life experiences that might benefit someone younger—but how do you effectively share what you know?  How do you let your intuitive and creative side come out of the closet?  Three widely researched elements make for happy retirements.  By taking a new look at our gifts at this time in life, this talk will discuss how all of us can expand our opportunities to make even more of a difference.

As a federal employee, Rolene Walker developed training for senior federal government field managers.  Prior to retirement, Rolene walked from California to South America.  Along the way, she led discussions with over 350 school and community groups about the importance of caring for the environment.   She has since returned to SFSU to earn a credential to teach environmental science.
