Second Season of CNN Dialogues Caps with Forum on Millennials

CNN’s Ali Velshi Moderates Event at Atlanta’s Rialto Center on Thursday, October 04

The first full year of CNN Dialogues events culminates in Atlanta with a live event on the Millennial generation – how members of this generation are changing how we work, live, and think.  Born after 1981, ‘Millennials’ are more multicultural, less religious, more educated, and more technologically savvy than older generations.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Millennials make up just under a quarter of the American workforce – and that share is growing.  On Thursday, Oct. 04, attendees to the CNN Dialogues forum will discuss the role of Millennials in business life – how they are changing the American workplace, and how the most challenging economy in generations may be changing them.

“The Millennial Generation: Changing the Way We Do Business” will be held at Georgia State University’s Rialto Center for the Arts (80 Forsyth Street, NW) on Thursday, Oct. 04 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm ET in Atlanta.

CNN anchor and chief business correspondent Ali Velshi will moderate the forum.  Velshi is based in New York and anchors World Business Today on CNN International and Your Money on CNN/U.S.  Velshi is an author, reports on global business events, contributes his expertise to CNN’s cross-platform business news, and interviews compelling personalities from the world of finance.

“The millennial generation is like nothing we’ve ever seen before – given the access they have had to education, technology and globalization.  Their entrance into the workforce changes the way business has traditionally operated, opening borders and concepts that were barriers just a generation ago,” said Velshi.

The panelists for this public discussion include some of the nation’s most experienced experts on the Millennial generation in the workforce.  Each panelist will bring to the discussion a depth of knowledge through varied experiences: professional management, scholarly research and publications, and personal experiences: FULL POST
