MAY 16 | 2:00 P.M. - 3:00 P.M.



Generation Z (born between 1996 and 2009) is in the limelight, and their arrival has affected the way that successful organizations attempt to engage young people. The first generation of the 21st century came of age during the most disruptive decade of the last century, and their arrival marks the end of clearly defined roles, traditions, and experiences. Learn from Josh Miller, a 17-year-old Generation Z expert and member of his own Jewish community, about the characteristics of this next generation and how to bring them into the fold as active members of the Jewish community.

During this inspired conversation, you will:

• Discover what makes Gen Z different than those generations who came before.
• Understand why Gen Z is crucial to meaningful Jewish and organizational life today and tomorrow.
• Learn which driving factors helped shape Generation Z’s values and behaviors.
• Understand Generation Z’s preferred communication styles.


Josh Miller is a passionate and informed advocate for his generation—Generation Z – and at 17 years old, he is already on his way to becoming a renowned thought leader. Among his many achievements, Josh is XYZ University’s Director of Gen Z Studies, co-author of XYZ University’s research papers Ready or Not – Here Comes Z and Teaching Gen Z: Everything we wish schools knew about our generation and education, and he’s the host of The Gen Z Podcast.

Josh launched his first business at the age of 13. That same year, he started speaking on national stages with the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative. That opportunity led him to becoming a co-anchor on Minnesota Vikings Huddle TV on Fox Sports North and he has since spoken in front of and been mentored by several notable international business leaders.

He’s the recipient of many awards including Teenage CEO to Watch, Minnesotan to Meet, and his school district’s Investment in Youth Award.
