According to the UN, by 2025 one in six people in the world will be over the age of 65, up from one in 11 in 2019. As our global population lives longer than ever, the World Economic Forum has proclaimed aging well a ‘lifelong healthcare priority’. 

As we live longer, it opens up new opportunities, challenges and ways of thinking about health. When we look at the economics, GenXers have a reported $2.4trillion in spending power in the US and Boomers account for 70% of household wealth at $28.6trillion.

This mini trend leans into what ‘aging well’ will mean and how we as consumers and businesses can show up for this consumer in both a thoughtful and meaningful way. If your organization is looking to learn more about these age groups – there are many more facts where these came from! Reach out and let’s grab a coffee.

In the last few weeks, we’ve heard from a good handful of people in our circle that they are venturing off to live a nomadic lifestyle where they can work from anywhere.

And because of this, an entirely new type of adventure dubbed ‘bleisure travel’ – blending business and leisure – has formed.

This mini trend explores how new travel communities are showing up for this workforce in meaningful ways – and ultimately how employers can support this way of living. Are you interested in discovering how your company can show up for this evolving workforce!? So are we! Let’s grab a coffee and chat about it!

Just about a year ago, we talked about the ’Shecession’ and Covid’s disproportionate impact on women – especially Black, Brown and young.

Well, friends, we hate to say it but not a whole lot has changed. And if the past year has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t wait around for the big guys to make it happen.
