Senior entrepreneurship expert honored

 

Senior entrepreneurship expert Elizabeth Isele was awarded Fielding University's Creative Longevity and Wisdom Award at the Positive Aging Conference in Washington, DC.

The award is given to someone who demonstrates a lifetime of service and impact in the field of aging.

“Elizabeth is the quintessential senior entrepreneur who is now bringing the much needed message to global audiences about the power of older adults to create change,” said Connie Corley, Ph.D., lead faculty in Fielding's Creative Longevity and Wisdom concentration. “She brings her own experiences as a serial entrepreneur to promote innovation and counteract stereotypes about aging, while promoting intergenerational solutions to challenges that necessitate collaboration.”

Previous recipients include George Valliant, Mary Catherine Bateson, Rick Moody, Gene Cohen, Connie Goldman and Fernando Torres-Gil.

Isele is CEO and founder of The Global Institute for Experienced Entrepreneurship. She's also a Senior Fellow in Social Innovation at Babson College
