Announcing the 2021 Gen2Gen Innovation Fellows

We need new ways to bring older and younger people together to solve problems, bridge divides and create a better future for all. Critical problems — like racial inequality, climate change and social isolation, just to name a few — require all of us working across generational divides.

Now more than ever, we need the nation’s most talented innovators and entrepreneurs to marshall their best ideas to create and scale intergenerational solutions.

Our second group of 15 Gen2Gen Innovation Fellows, ranging in age from 28 to 84, are bridging generational divides while also fighting for racial justice, empowering immigrant communities, healing trauma, creating affordable housing, reducing ageism and loneliness, preparing young people to lead, and so much more.

Here’s a brief introduction to the group. Stay tuned for more ways to get to know each of them in the coming months.

Thanks to the generous funders of this fellowship:

  • The May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust
  • The Eisner Foundation
  • The RRF Foundation for Aging
