Presented by the Walton Family Foundation: Gen Z is Here. Are We Ready?
The experience of America’s youth during COVID-19 will shape their mindsets and perspectives for years and decades to come. What do we and don’t we yet understand about Gen Z — about what they experienced during the pandemic and their future influence on culture, politics, and the social sector? At a discussion hosted by the Walton Family Foundation, new data and voices will help us learn together, see the path ahead, and better understand how to co-create change alongside rising leaders with a unique vision for unity and collaboration.
