As people return to working some of the time in offices, the economy bounces back from the pandemic, and the competition for talent intensifies, now is the time to think long and hard about the new generation entering the workforce - Generation Z.  Different from the Millennials, many of whom are who are now moving into leadership roles, they are the drivers of much of the protest of the Summer of 2020, they are innovators and have high expectations of work and their employers.

Jennifer Openshaw, CEO of Girls with Impact joins us to discuss their recent national research on Gen Z - what motivates them, their expectations of the workplace, how they will shape the world and their likely impact on your business.

Going way beyond the wide generalizations often made about generations, you’ll hear some surprising and essential insights into Generation Z’s ideas about having an impact, activism, mental health, building confidence, teams, leadership, entrepreneurship, the office, and diversity and inclusion.
