Dispelling Stereotypes: Millennials in the Workforce
 

Lazy, narcissistic, entitled. Civic-minded, innovative, collaborative. These are all stereotypes, both positive and negative, of a generational demographic cohort of our workforce? Millennials. With this generation making up an estimated 75% of the workforce by 2030, millennials will quickly be dispersed throughout a company from the ground floor to the c-suite. So how do you manage, mentor, or work for this growing workforce? 

Join us to hear from a panel made up entirely of millennials as they discuss what they value in the workplace, their point of view of a cross-generational workforce, what they need to be successful and more. Panelists include:
