Activating Generation X with Celine Coggins

Jeanne A. Curley

Celine Coggins is a social entrepreneur passionate about building networks and collective action to reduce inequity. She founded Teach Plus in 2007 to address the growing need for authentic teacher leadership to transform the nation’s schools and our education system. She currently serves as the Executive Director of Grantmakers for Education.

Celine joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about her new endeavor The Legacy Years Project, an initiative looking to activate members of Generation X to establish a positive collective legacy. She looks for lessons learned from how the Millennial and Gen Z generations successfully organized around student loan debt as highlighted in her recent LinkedIn article. Celine points to issues like securing Social Security and reining in social media and polarization as potential signature issues for the oft-forgotten generation to organize around.

It’s a thought-provoking exploration of generational zeitgeists you won’t want to miss!
