For the millennial generation, these may truly be the best and worst of times. millennials are well educated, highly connected, and the most diverse generation in American history. They have been characterized by resilience, creativity and cooperation. Millennials have taken to entrepreneurship, service, and the sciences in an attempt to improve the lives of those around them, yet, they are confronting almost unprecedented headwinds with a stagnant labor market, stalled wages, and rising educational debts.
National Journal and The Atlantic concluded our unprecedented series, "A New America: How Millennials Are Sparking Change," on the economic opportunities and challenges facing this vast generation. The event featured insights from millennials, government officials, and more. Together, we explored how millennials are responding to their generational challenges, how they are best positioning themselves for success, and why they are more engaged in social, than political activism.
