Crushing boundaries: Gen Z, society’s agents of change

The majority of today’s businesses are about to be blindsided. While they remain focused on Millennials, they are missing the big cultural shift underway. Today’s 12- to 22-year-olds —dubbed “Gen Z”— are coming of age against a backdrop of unprecedented political, social, technological, and economic change. These circumstances are shaping a generation that is changing our society, redefining cultural norms, and questioning decades-old geopolitical and business assumptions. In this session, Marcie Merriman, Executive Director at EY, will discuss who Gen Z is, how these young people are blurring expectations and crushing boundaries, and what businesses can do to prepare to meet their high expectations.
