Julia Randell-Khan is a Consulting Fellow on the inter-disciplinary New Map of Life™ initiative at the Stanford Center on Longevity. Julia is from the UK and her transition from a long-term career in the legal field led her to being a partner fellow at the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute in 2017. In 2018 Julia took a lead role as a research fellow on the SCL’s New Map of Life™ initiative which launched in fall 2018. Julia’s interest in later life transition also combines with a role at Encore.org, the leading non-profit in the encore career movement, where she is a Senior Fellow helping to build global and cross-cultural connections. Now based back in the UK, Julia has founded Encore Fellows UK (with Prof Andrew Scott from the London Business School and co-author of The 100 Year Life as Chair) to offer experienced workers at 50+ encore careers in the social sector.
Julia spent over 25 years in the legal field, as a practicing lawyer in international banking, then moving to a pioneering knowledge management role for the international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. This included developing the firm’s relationship program with leading law firms around the world. She is a graduate of McGill University, Montreal. She trained and practiced law at Norton Rose Fulbright.
Julia is an active mentor and works closely with Fair Trials, a specialist human rights NGO. She also set up the Women in Transition network to support growth and development from change as senior women transition from long term careers to the next phase of life.
Julia is working closely with the SCL team on the international aspects of the New Map of Life™ initiative including a convening on the Global Longevity Agenda at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in the fall of 2019.
