On May 21, Microsoft, National Journal and The Atlantic will host the final town hall in our series, “A New America: How Millennials Are Sparking Change,” at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center in Washington, D.C. We are excited to conclude our conversation on the opportunities and challenges facing this diverse generation with insights from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D–Hawaii, Rep. Aaron Schock, R–Ill., as well as Millennials, academics, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders.
Throughout the year-long series, we’ve traveled and engaged with college campuses in three truly unique and innovative cities – Los Angeles, Austin and Richmond. During each event, we’ve witnessed extraordinary entrepreneurship and service on display, in many ways teaching us that Millennials are carving their own way.
Specifically at our last event in Richmond, we explored the many benefits of beginning a career through entrepreneurship or public service in our conversations with Sen. Tim Kaine, D–Va., local entrepreneurs, national service organization representatives and University of Richmond students. Millennials are truly a generation committed to making a difference in their communities and sparking social change in the face of a stagnant labor market, stalled wages and rising educational debts.
As we bring our series to a close, we will examine the economic situation facing the Millennial generation today and how they have shaped volunteerism, entrepreneurship and public service in the 21st century. We hope you will join us and tune in to the live stream at http://www.nationaljournal.com/events. Follow the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #MillennialPathways.
