From watching baby Jessica in the well on PM magazine news hour, to the first MTV VMA awards with Bette Midler, the fall of the Berlin wall, moonwalking, winning at Oregon trail, shopping the Delia's Catalogue, and settin' up the perfect AOL screen name where are just part of the ever changing fabric of our life. We were always in the right place at the right time to experience all the changes happening socially, financially, technologically.
Personally, to have experienced both a tech free childhood and a tech heavy adulthood and everything that comes in between that is a gift of perspective! This bandwidth for change, innovation and exploration have always been the bedrock of how we grew up.
I mean, the TRL countdown was an even changing list of pop excellence: we just had to adapt!
As a result, Millennials are often considered a generation of change due to the unique circumstances and experiences that have shaped their worldview.
Overall, millennials are driven by a desire to make a positive impact on the world and create a better future for themselves and future generations. Their unique experiences and values have led them to challenge traditional norms and systems, and to push for meaningful change.
Millennials are making generational changes due to a combination of factors that are unique to their generation.
Here's why millennials are are DOPE and being one is AWESOME.
Innovation and creativity:
Millennials are often seen as a highly innovative and creative generation, as they are exposed to technology from an early age and are comfortable with exploring new ideas and ways of doing things.
One major factor is the advent of technology and the internet, which has enabled them to access information and connect with people all over the world like never before.
As a result, they have been exposed to a wide range of perspectives and have developed a deep awareness of social and economic inequality. They are often highly educated and globally connected.
This has given them a greater awareness of social and economic issues and has allowed them to mobilize quickly and effectively for causes they believe in. Social media has also played a key role in allowing millennials to connect with like-minded individuals and build communities around shared interests and values.
Diversity and inclusion:
Millennials tend to be more aware of issues related to diversity and inclusion, and are committed to creating more inclusive environments in the workplace and beyond.
Millennials also prioritize social justice, diversity, and inclusion, and are actively working to create more equitable and inclusive workplaces, communities, and societies. They are vocal advocates for issues like gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, racial justice, and environmental sustainability.
Many millennials are entrepreneurial and are starting their own businesses or pursuing careers that allow them to be their own bosses, which can bring fresh perspectives and ideas to various industries.
It is important to consider the economic environment that millennials have grown up in. Many have experienced the Great Recession of 2008 and the subsequent slow economic recovery, which has left them with a sense of financial insecurity and a desire for change in the current economic system.
Millennials are often very socially conscious and are passionate about making a positive impact on the world, whether through activism, volunteerism, or philanthropy.
Millennials are also highly conscious of their impact on the environment and are committed to sustainability and environmentalism.
In many ways, millennials are the product of a rapidly changing world, and they are committed to making a positive impact in the face of these challenges. They are often criticized for being idealistic or entitled, but their passion and commitment to creating a better world are undeniable.
Flexibility and adaptability:
Millennials are known for their ability to adapt to change quickly and their willingness to embrace new technologies and ways of working, which can be an asset in today's fast-paced and rapidly evolving business landscape. Many millennials came of age during a time of great social and political upheaval, including the rise of social media and the Great Recession of 2008.
Because let's be real, we all survived Y2K and lived to tell the tale! And now look at us on TikTok!!!
We have been in the toss of all these major technological advances and social movements, mostly because WE started them! And we have no plan to stop. Staying stuck, stagnant and status quo is not part of our vocabulary.
And those are just a FEW reasons why we millennials rule and are making some dope moves in the world. And since YOU are one of those trailblazers, tap into:
