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.
Join National Journal and The Atlantic as we conclude our unprecedented series, "A New America: How Millennials Are Sparking Change," on the economic opportunities and challenges facing this vast generation. This event will feature insights from Millennials, government officials, and more. We'll explore 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. Join us as we confront some of the biggest questions facing this generation, and offer assessments on the challenges they face.
