Bridging the Generation Gap in Egypt and the American Workplace

The historical transfer of power in Egypt has seen the departure of an entrenched 82-year-old dictator and a movement toward a democratically elected government where young Egyptians will have a major voice in politics and policies of the future.  A major key to a successful transition that will allow Egypt to move forward as a stable, innovative nation lies in respect and understanding between generations.

The same is true with American businesses.

Innovation is the intersection of the past and present that leads to the future.  That’s why it is so important that business leaders publicly acknowledge the contribution of each generation, applaud the unique strengths brought to the table by workers of different ages, and encourage everyone to share their viewpoints as a way to make a strong team even stronger.

Anthony Crawford: 19th and M Street's Buoy in The Sea

Anthony Crawford: 19th and M Street's Buoy in The Sea

It’s late morning on a Wednesday, and the intersection of 19th and M Street in Northwest is a mob of elegantly dressed men and women navigating their way through the bustling crowd.

The people weave through each other with swiftness and agility, reminiscent of an Olympic slalom race.  It is a sea of duffle coats and pinstripe suits, high heels and pashmina shawls. 

And as this crowd ebbs and flows with the rescheduling of meetings, lunch dates, and conference calls, Anthony Crawford, sporting a puffy green jacket, a USA winter cap, and a neon green vest, remains still at the corner of 19th and M, a lone buoy in the shifting sea.

A Pittsburgh Steeler lanyard dangles from his right pant pocket.  He’s ready for his team to play in the Super Bowl.

Long Time White House Protestor Deals With Winter Storm

Long Time White House Protestor Deals With Winter Storm

Where were you during last night's winter storm?  

Stuck in your car or on public transportation?  

In your office working late night?  

Or were you bundled up in your home, just a spectator to the whipping winds and heavy snow?

Concepcion Picciotto did none of the above.  

Last night Picciotto, better known to many as the lady who lives in the tent at the edge of Lafayette Park across from the White House, continued her protest which began in 1981, despite the freezing temperatures and precipitation.  The only time she leaves her area is when she gets a volunteer to hold it for her.

We asked Picciotto how she deals with winter weather and snowstorms like the one that hit last night in the video above.

GWU Remembers Haiti Earthquake One Year Later With Anniversary Ceremony

“Exactly one year ago at about 4:52 p.m., I was sitting at a round table, enjoying rice and beans in the comfort of my home located in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti,” Karl Delatour, a George Washington University Freshman who hails from Haiti, recalled Wednesday as he spoke at GW’s one-year Haiti anniversary ceremony.  “As I reflected on how to go about studying for my upcoming history exam, I suddenly felt the table vibrate.  As this vibration becomes more and more strong, it is not until my glass of water fell to the ground and shattered that I realized that something big was happening…something really big.”
