Shifting Winds: How Millennials are Driving the Movement to Do Good
By Charles Antis
Have you seen the SNL skit entitled “The Millennials?” It hilariously portrays millennials as dull, living-at-home, uninterested in work, always on their cell phones, and pretty much unreliable. Is this an accurate assessment? I vote a resounding “No!” In fact, my experience says that millennials are going to change the world… “for good!” Millennials are the largest generation in the U.S. and they are quickly becoming the most influential population today. As they begin to shift the dynamics of my 30-year-old company, I am witnessing firsthand, their desire to do good as well as the strong influence they have over their older counterparts to follow suit. No other generation has been as committed to doing good as the millennials, and that passion is one of their defining characteristics.
