Eunice Lin Nichols discusses breaking down age segregation and how bringing generations together will be key to changing perceptions in the workplace.

Eunice Lin Nichols is obsessed with bringing older and younger generations together to solve society’s greatest challenges, creating a better future for all. She is Vice President at Encore.org and campaign director for Generation to Generation (Gen2Gen), a 5-year initiative to mobilize one million adults 50+ to help young people thrive. 

Previously, she led The Purpose Prize (now a program of AARP), which has awarded over $5 million in prizes to nearly 100 social entrepreneurs over the age of 60 since 2006. 

The ASU GSV Summit brought together the nation’s most committed leaders in business, education, nonprofits, government, and entertainment for the three-day conference. A collaboration between Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley (GSV), the annual conference is the industry catalyst for elevating dialogue and driving action around raising learning and career outcomes through scaled innovation. 

WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Summit and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issues of education and workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
