Build the future with Gen Z

Which generation will most significantly impact our future? Anticipated to make up about a third of the global workforce, Gen Z is poised to redefine how we work, shop, and consume; shape public policy; and more. That’s why we’re expanding upon our previous webinar about Gen Z in the workplace with an opportunity to interact straight with the source. We’re presenting a panel of Gen Z UBC students and alumni who will share their views and experiences about their cohort’s values and aspirations, approaches to work, communication styles, environmental and climate concerns, and more. Register for your chance to pose the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask about how to engage, influence, and collaborate with the next generational wave.

This webinar is the second part of a two-part series — the first webinar, Empower Gen Z in the workplace, was on February 28.
