According to Forbes in 2025, millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce. Today, one in three workers is a millennial, but millennials represent only a fraction of membership in security professional associations. What does this mean for the risk management sector and our global challenges? We will present new research based on a comprehensive survey of young professionals in the risk management field and extensive research on how other sectors are integrating millennials into their organizations. This highly interactive session will feature a simulation in generational dynamics with a panel discussion from three generations of security practitioners: Baby Boomer, GenXer, and Millennial. We will explore strategies for integrating these diverse groups in real-time through technology.

Learning Objectives:
1. Engage and retain more millennials in their organizations by examining what has and has not worked in other sectors and by reviewing the empirical data presented.
2. Dispel misconceptions, through the simulation, of the world’s most educated, tech savvy, and controversial generation and better understand how to communicate across generations
3. Leverage millennial talents and work through perceived millennial weaknesses to contribute to the success for their departments, organizations, and the security sector.
