Millennials: You know who you are. You’re sometimes toted as the coffee (or chai latte) downing, super-smartphone slinging, “dang you unemployment!” multi-cultural mega generation.. but truth be told, that’s only a small portion of Gen Y-ers.
What’s more important than what we’re doing as consumers, students, or young professionals is our activism in one way or another. We’re lucky enough to have the most channels of communication open to us since.. well, ever.
It’s the connections we’ve made online have made us feel as though we have a bigger stake in the future of our world: and boy are we making things happen. Thanks to the PEW Research Center study on our generation (“Confident. Connected. Open to Change.”) and folks at the Online Graduate Program, we have actual research (and an infographic) to show the badassery our generation is associated with. Enjoy and soldier on, Gen Y.
