June’s whole network event focuses on young(er) and emerging social leaders, building on February's whole network event on the future of social leadership.
We know social change leadership does not belong to a small number of people in formal leadership roles. We also know social change leadership does not belong to specific age groups. We’ve been inspired by activist and spokesperson/co-founder of Our Future Our Choice Femi Oluwole; climate activist and School strike for climate catalyst Greta Thunberg; feminist activist, writer and founder of Everyday Sexism Project Laura Bates; Lord Mayor of Sheffield, councillor and Green party MEP candidate Magid Magid; and, many more.
June’s speakers, and co-designers of the event, are:
- Alex Black, regional development officer, Youth Focus: North East
- Charlotte Windebank, managing director, FIRST
- Nil Neale, head of business and people development, EY Foundation
At June’s network event, the questions we ask ourselves might include:
- How do traditionalists (born 1900-1945), baby boomers (born 1946-1964) and generation Xers (born 1965-1980) make space for younger people (millenials/generation Y born 1981-2000 and generation Z born after 2000) in social change leadership?
- How do all these generations collaborate together to make the difference we want to see in the places we live, in our region, our country and our planet?
- What do we each need to start, stop or keep doing? Give up? Share?
- How do we share power, resources, knowledge, skills, ideas, passion and drive with each other?
Join us to lend your voice, your power, your resources to explore these questions, to ask your own, and also to listen, to step back, to let others take the floor.
Generations together: Making it happen is North East Together's 16th whole network event. As usual, it will be interactive event with time for you to reflect on the theme of the night, take part in group discussions, and meet other North East Together members through guided, and informal, networking.
