CEO, Senior Fellow, Encore Global Program
Julia is a fellow at Stanford University’s Center on Longevity, working on an inter-disciplinary project – the “New Map of Life™”- and the transformative changes needed to address the challenges and opportunities presented by longer lives. This research builds on Julia’s experience at Stanford’s Distinguished Careers Institute – a mid-life career transition programme. Julia’s own transition is from 30+ years in international law firm practice and management at (now) Norton Rose Fulbright and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer to a career as a longevity entrepreneur and encore career advocate.
Together with Andrew Scott (professor of economics at the London Business School and co-author of The 100 Year Life: Living and Working in an Age of Longevity), she has co-founded Encore Fellows UK to bring Encore.org’s US based Encore Fellowships programme to the UK and promote the value that experienced workers at 50+ can offer to the social sector as part of an encore career.
