THE THINK TANK

Who on Earth is Generation Z?

genzThey’re loyal. They’re compassionate. They’re responsible.

They’re Generation Z. Born between 1995 and 2010, they’re now from 6 to 21 years old.

Markedly different from Millenials and the product of their parents, Gen X, Generation Z has a whole new identity.

Generation Z grew up during a recession and may be the first generation in recent memory to believe they won’t do as well, financially, as their parents.

Technology is so much a part of their being, they’re beyond tech-savvy. They’re tech-integrated — not using technology but living it.

Join us on The Think Tank, Sunday, July 17, at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., as we have a conversation with Dr. Corey Seemiller, who has done extensive research on Generation Z and has co-authored the recently released “Generation Z Goes to College.”

Along with Dr. Seemiller, we’ll look at who Generation Z is, and what its impact on the world might be.
