You may have them in your home or in your office. They wait on you in every retail establishment you enter. They are the Millennials—the approximately 80 million young adults born between 1980 and 2000. They are the best educated, most optimistic, digital natives who haven’t learned yet not to ask “why?” They’re frustrating, enchanting, and profoundly changing the world of work forever. How do you make the most of them? Shirley Serini, one of our members, will share some insights and ideas in this week’s program. Shirley is an assistant professor who teaches public relations at VSU. Her research interest in Millennials is based on the young adults she teaches and the hope for the future she sees in them.
