Event description

Description

With each new generation, there’s inevitably much angst and hand-wringing, but never have we worried as much as we worry about millennials. Can they make it in the new gig economy? Are they facing higher rates of poverty than previous generations? Are the key race and gender gaps finally closing for them?

Please join us on June 6, 2019 as the country’s top scholars provide the latest evidence on how millennials are faring.
