Fairness between the generations

Lord David Willetts, Executive Chair, Resolution Foundation


The provocation and preceding Fellows event covered such topics as:

  • Is there a generational difference or are any differences we observe down to age and regardless of generation, we grow up to be much the same?
  • Where do generational differences appear? In work values? In resilience? In mental wellbeing?
  • What is the impact on organisations and what are they doing about it?
