About this Video

Millennials have gotten a bad rap. We are often perceived as entitled, distracted, tech-obsessed, and irreverent, and these perceptions are acting as a barrier to our generation’s ability to become true leaders in our organizations. We must flip the lens on these stereotypes. Many within our generation are purpose-driven, brand-oriented, innovative, connected, and courageous. Whether we like it or not, we are the future leaders. So, what’s holding us back? The answer isn’t to point a finger at the current generations of leaders. It’s on us. It’s time for us to show up differently. It’s time to own the label.
