Gen Z is Making Change: New Tools for Impact

Mar 11, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Gen Z is here and they’re making themselves heard - how can brands, institutions and leaders learn from their tools and methods? Young people have always influenced the politics of our nation, from the authors of the Declaration of Independence to the architects of the Civil Rights Movement to today’s climate marches, petitions to the Department of Education, and record youth voter turnout. How are the tools and methods used by youth activists in the past being updated today to trade new ideas and momentum — from phone trees to Notion, Meetup to Clubhouse, fliers to Snapchat? And how can we empower and support young people to continue making an impact now and in the future?
