Millennial Week DC 2016 provides opportunities for the nation’s largest generation to come together, learn, network and inspire. This year, the weeklong celebration of millennials will be held October 9 – 15, 2016, at locations throughout Washington, D.C.
According to the Pew Research Center, millennials surpass Gen Xers as the largest generation in the U.S. labor force and their spending power is expected to increase as the generation enters into its prime spending years. As such, the importance and influence of millennials is on the rise as they continue to become breadwinners, leaders and rising stars of the nation’s economy.
Ranked as one of the most popular cities for millennials, the nation’s capital will host seven days of events designed to explore and celebrate millennials’ impact on business, culture and society. Inspirational millennial entrepreneurs will meet aspiring small business owners to discuss topics including running a lean start-up, building an online brand, protecting your business idea and funding your goals.
Millennials can expect one-on-one conversations, dynamic panel discussions and opportunities for real connections over the course of Millennial Week DC. Event speakers will cover and provide coaching in the following areas: entrepreneurship, civic engagement & social impact, career & professional development as well as financial freedom.
“We are a diverse group of driven, tech-savvy, community-minded Americans that are making big waves in society by swaying elections, disrupting industries and reshaping America’s cities,” said Natalie M. Moss, director & founder, Millennial Week. “As such, Millennial Week events are designed to cultivate, promote and share the most meaningful ideas and trends from this community of 18 to 35 year olds.”
Additionally, this year’s event series will include a job fair and hiring symposium. In partnership with the Workforce Investment Council, attendees can attend panel discussions and participate in fireside chats to explore job opportunities for millennials in Washington, D.C.’s high growth sectors.
“Based on job opportunities, salaries, and innovative and attractive employers, the D.C. metropolitan area is overflowing with “millennial friendly” environments,” said Moss. “As a local millennial, I know D.C. houses some of the best and brightest of our generation and as such, we are excited to bring together hundreds of overachieving millennials for one awesome week.”
