Change Lecture 2019: The challenge of intergenerational inequality

The Change Lecture 2019 was hosted by our parent organisation, the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants.

In June 2019 the Intergenerational Centre at the Resolution Foundation published 'An Intergenerational Audit for the UK: 2019' in which the differences primarily between post-war baby boomers and subsequent generations were carefully analysed. There are challenges for both - in terms, for example, of an asset rich older generation that will require increasing care as they age.

Careful analysis is at the core of the work of management consultants in the design of change programmes, but what are the changes that need to be made in order to address the issues highlighted by the Intergenerational Centre, and is there practical wisdom that the management consulting community can beneficially bring to bear on this?

We were pleased that Lord David Willetts, President of the Intergenerational Centre, gave this year's Change Lecture hosted by the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants at which the issues were aired and there was the opportunity to debate the contribution that can be made both by management consultants and the City to address them.

The Change Lecture was held at Armourers Hall on the evening of 8 October and was followed by a reception.
