JIM EMERMAN, Executive VP, Civic Ventures
In 2006, Civic Ventures awarded the first Purpose Prize for social innovators over 60. Twelve hundred activists, leaders and entrepreneurs between 60 and 96 were nominated for their work and for "leading with experience." Emerman shows how their mix of passion and experience helps us rethink what's possible later in life.
