What Young Leaders Want — and Don’t Want — from Older Allies

July 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

The Encore Network’s Intergenerational Affinity Group is proud to present key insights from CoGenerate’s recent study of younger leaders, with guest Sarah McKinney Gibson, Storytelling and Media Specialist at CoGenerate.

Sarah will provide an overview of the research, which asked the question “How can younger leaders and older allies work together effectively to achieve social change?” The study was supported by AARP and The Eisner Foundation and based on input from 31 younger leaders of social change initiatives.

Sarah will be joined by Dillon St. Bernard, one of the study participants. Dillon leads Team DSB, a creative collective that produces multimedia projects for young and multicultural voices. His work has included social media strategy for social movements like the 2019 Climate Strikes, March On for Voting Rights, and Earth Day Live. He has been named a Forbes 30 Under 30 Media honoree.

In addition to learning about the study, we’ll hear about plans for next steps and offer ample opportunity for you to engage in a spirited dialogue about how to improve intergenerational collaboration.

The Intergenerational Affinity Group meets monthly to connect leaders and programs that purposefully engage people of all ages. We take inspiration from Chris Farrell’s 2022 Forbes article, titled “The future of aging is intergenerational,” in which he rejects the idea of intergenerational conflict and makes the case for intergenerational collaboration. That is our vision and practice and gives eloquent testimony to the fact we’re all in this together.
