Intergenerational Leadership: The Challenges of a Shifting Workforce

The New York Times and the International Leadership Association, in conjunction with the Global Coalition on Aging, invite you to the second in a series of panel discussions on Thursday, March 7, 2013 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM at The New York Times Building, located at 620 Eighth Avenue in New York City, NY. Pre-registration is required.

This panel is being convened to create a new and different discussion of population aging that goes to the core of the profound structural demographic transformation of the 21st century. What is most significant about population aging - and what is most important for younger people - is that we are at the brink of an entirely new kind of global society because of the very different ratios of old to young across the globe. A society in which our 20th century notions of work, aging, and retirement will lose all relevancy. Twenty first century leaders must simultaneously address the concerns of low and middle income countries, where youth under the age of 30 represent 50 to 80 percent of the local population, and emerging and high income countries where there are more people over age 60 than under age 14 and where longevity may average 120 by mid-century while birth rates continue to fall to historic lows. How will these dramatic trends influence local and global leadership? How should leaders plan education, anticipate work force and health care needs, and engage in various processes that address a multitude of hopes and aspirations?

The impact on today’s college students couldn’t be clearer. In the coming decades, it will be up to them to re-invent health, education, work, politics, and more, in order to align these institutions to the new kind of society in which they will live. And leadership will be needed to create these changes.

Please RSVP on or before March 4 as seating is limited. Tickets for the event are $15.00, coffee, tea, and dessert will be served.
