Shira Harrington is a Gen-Xer who has spent the last 25+ years helping employers and job seekers connect with purpose. She’s done this through executive recruiting, career coaching, and generational diversity keynoting. Her epiphany came in December of 2013 while sitting on her grandfather’s couch. She was suddenly, and overwhelmingly, moved to tears by the plight facing long-term unemployed Boomers, some of whom were her coaching clients. She knew something had to be done to help them re-career and find consistent income streams. So she shared her vision with anyone who would listen, until she found a team of volunteers who shared her passion and desire to help Boomers move from barely surviving…to thriving in this new gig economy.
