What You Will Learn
Smart. Collaborative. Confident. These are just some of the many characteristics of Generation Z, those born in 1995 and after. Although some characteristics may look similar to the Millennial Generation, Generation Z brings a whole new set of attributes and experiences that challenge the way we have worked with college students. We have just unlocked effective strategies to engage, empower, and work with Millennials in a meaningful way. But, what worked with Millennials might not be effective for Generation Z. This session will cover characteristics of Generation Z based on a number of global studies on this emerging college population. We will investigate how we may need to adapt our processes, programs, and curriculum in a strategic proactive manner to best engage these students in leadership education.
