With the rise of the “Lazy Girl Job," a habit of job-hopping, a push-back against standard workplace practices, and a demand for better work-life balance, this new generation of workers is making hiring managers, HR folk, and recruiters’ heads spin. There’s so much to talk about! This panel will discuss all the ways Gen Z is changing the way we think about careers and how to better mentor and work with Gen Z.
All proceeds from this event support the Women's Media Group Educational Foundation.
