One of the most insightful panel discussions in the inaugural Advancing Diversity Week was #AskGen-Z: What Inspires Them and What Has to Change in the Media Industry. It was hosted by MediaVillage's own In the Loop and #AskGen-Z columnist Kelly Kozakevich and featured six Gen-Z panelists who are currently working in the media, advertising, marketing and entertainment industry. Topics discussed ranged from what these young people look for in an employer and what they value in companies, to the work and the changes they wish to see in their respective industries. Gen-Z and young Millennials have proven to pursue careers aligned with their own passions and interests over conventional employment and look for employers that value those passions and encourage them to push the envelope.
