Episode details

In Conversation with Kevin Robinson, Harvard ALI Fellow ‘22

Joining Avivah Wittenberg-Cox for this episode of 4-Quarter Lives is Kevin Robinson. Born into modest beginnings in a black American family in Detroit, Kevin was the first of his family to go to college. Through what he describes as ‘luck’ and ‘a few smarts’ he rose through the world of law, as a public prosecutor at local, regional and national levels, before joining the corporate world as General Counsel for asset managers Guggenheim Investments. Together with his wife, he also looked to what he could contribute through a range of voluntary activities at local level.

Transitioning and Giving Forward in Q3

At 60, however, Kevin decided more was still possible, and he came to Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative in 2022 with a clear goal – to make a transition in this third quarter of life, give back and ensure that other members of the community he came from would have both more stability and more opportunity through better financial education.
