Generation Z, Post Millennials, iGeneration, Next Gen, and Plurals are all names used to describe the generation loosely defined as those born between the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. They represent 25% of the U.S. population. Gen Zers are masters of social media and constantly connected to their peers and their environment. Several local young women, active in their schools and community, will tell us who they are, what motivates them, what they see in their future and if they plan to change the world.
If you want to learn more about “Gen Z: The Connected Generation” join the Midcoast Women and a panel of Gen Zers from area schools on December 11, 6:30-7:45 pm at the Camden Public Library. Moderator Ronni Blaisdell, Admission and Outreach Director, of the Watershed School in Camden will lead the panel in a lively discussion before opening up to the audience for Q&A. Judy Gushee of the Midcoast Planning team is the program organizer. The biographies for each panel member are on the Midcoast Women website, www.midcoastwomen.org
The mission of Midcoast Women provides opportunities for area women* of all ages to find and strengthen our individual and collective voices through highlighting and amplifying the voices of women in our community. *Midcoast Women uses an inclusive definition of the word “women” to apply to all trans women, gender queer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.
This event is free and open to the public.
