ENSURE GENERATION Y WOMEN REACH THE TOP IN YOUR ORGANIZATION Many organizations believe that the Millennial generation is paving the way for innovation, yet employers struggle to understand what makes this generation tick. Alongside this issue, in spite of decades of equal opportunities legislation in the Western world, women are still scarce in the most senior positions in organizations. This has led to heated debates about the merit of quotas for women on boards and in senior roles. Yet these issues are very rarely considered as one. Understanding how gender and generation work together is vital to shaping the transforming workplace. For the first time, Rising Stars explores gender and generation through the lens of Millennial women. Drawing on detailed original research, it shows organizations how to understand professional women in their twenties and thirties so that the business can develop these employees into future leaders. Featuring signature practices from a variety of global businesses, Rising Stars is the only book organizations need to set the parameters for change and is invaluable for Generation Y women to make sense of their own career paths.

Despite a learning disability, he has launched his own successful companies and gained the friendship and guidance of top CEOs-all before even graduating high school. Now, Rosenstein shares his own fascinating story, as well as practical advice, inspiring examples, and extraordinary insight on how the plugged-in generation has an unprecedented ability to connect, learn, change, and make a difference.

The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East

Despite the world's elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Christopher M. Schroeder was curious but skeptical about the future of investing in the Arab world. Travelling to Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, and even Damascus, he saw thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, all willing to face cultural, legal, and societal impediments inherent to their worlds. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and PayPal making significant bets, despite the uncertainty in the region. With Startup Rising, he marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East-one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.

If you deal with today's students as a marketer, college faculty member, administrator, parent, or high school counselor, this hands-on guide is a necessary addition to your bookshelf. The new, updated edition features the latest data on the Millennial Generation and how they are changing--and will continue to change--college life. Just as profoundly as their Boomer and Gen-X parents did, college students and their younger siblings have different expectations for their college experience. The ways that they involve their parents in their lives are very different than the relationship between Boomers and their parents. A new chapter in this second edition addresses the shift from Boomer to Gen-X parents of college students, the next big transition on the doorstep of higher education. The authors address issues ranging from the rise of ratings-driven admissions, to the rising burden of student loans, to greater challenges facing career counselors, to the new transition from Boomer "helicopter" parents to Gen-X "stealth fighter" parents. The new edition also presents original survey results on college students and the parents of college students. This exciting new feature is sponsored by Datatel Corporation and Chartwells, and was carried out by Crux Research in collaboration with LifeCourse Associates. With this book, you will find out why Millennial college students: * Like to work in teams * Are risking less and planning more * Find money and class to be more divisive than race Learn how this generation of college students is different and what changes you must make in your approach to recruit them and market to them successfully.

Hailed by national leaders as politically diverse as former Vice President Al Gore and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Generations has been heralded by reviewers as a brilliant, if somewhat unsettling, reassessment of where America is heading. William Strauss and Neil Howe posit the history of America as a succession of generational biographies, beginning in 1584 and encompassing every-one through the children of today. Their bold theory is that each generation belongs to one of four types, and that these types repeat sequentially in a fixed pattern. The vision of Generations allows us to plot a recurring cycle in American history -- a cycle of spiritual awakenings and secular crises -- from the founding colonists through the present day and well into this millenium. Generations is at once a refreshing historical narrative and a thrilling intuitive leap that reorders not only our history books but also our expectations for the twenty-first century.

"The first major accounting of the millennial generation written by someone who belongs to it." -- Jia Tolentino, The New Yorker "The best, most comprehensive work of social and economic analysis about our benighted generation." --Tony Tulathimutte, author of Private Citizens "The kind of brilliantly simple idea that instantly clarifies an entire area of culture."--William Deresiewicz, author of Excellent Sheep Millennials have been stereotyped as lazy, entitled, narcissistic, and immature. We've gotten so used to sloppy generational analysis filled with dumb clichés about young people that we've lost sight of what really unites Millennials. Namely: !--[if !supportLists]--- We are the most educated and hard-working generation in American history. !--[if !supportLists]--- We poured historic and insane amounts of time and money into preparing ourselves for the 21st century labor market. - We have been taught to consider working for free (homework, internships) a privilege for our own benefit. - We are poorer, more medicated, and more precariously employed than our parents, grandparents, even our great grandparents, with less of a social safety net to boot. Kids These Days, is about why. In brilliant, crackling prose, early Wall Street occupier Malcolm Harris gets mercilessly real about our maligned birth cohort. Examining trends like runaway student debt, the rise of the intern, mass incarceration, social media, and more, Harris gives us a portrait of what it means to be young in America today that will wake you up and piss you off. Millennials were the first generation raised explicitly as investments, Harris argues, and in Kids These Days he dares us to confront and take charge of the consequences now that we are grown up.

Is ‘hustle and grind’ really the message of The New Way? Is financial freedom really what it’s about? is ‘living life on our terms’ really the summit of this mission? Is The New Way about becoming more successful than our generations before us? This book is a conversation about The New Way to Live, Lead, Earn, and Give. It is a collection of insights and ideas about how we can, and how we are, changing the world. It’s an invitation to the New Superheroes—the people all over the world who give a sh*t about each other and our earth—to lighten up in our work as Game Changers. It’s a time stamp so that our kids and their kids can read it and say, “oh, so that’s what you were growing through back then...” The New Way is not just about having more money at the end of the month. Success as we’d been taught isn’t sufficient. Success to our generation looked and felt completely different to what it looked and felt like to generations before us. We millennials do not thrive off gains in a capitalist society. The religious separation that our parents’ generation know is torturing our hearts. Our planet isn’t a place for us to holiday, but a place of permanent residence with the requirement that we nurture and love our Mother Earth as our one collective mother. There is no ’top’ when it comes to leadership, but instead we’re all about the power of tribe. We don’t care to move forward at lightning speed, but would rather to stop and go back to our indigenous roots and ensure that ancient wisdoms are never forgotten. Taking care of our brothers and sisters who are without basic necessities is the only way we all win. Play is everything. We’re here to change the world, but we’ve gotta stop taking it so seriously. We’re here to use our talents and abilities to create epic sh*t, but we’ve gotta stop missing the point along the way. It’s time for us to thrive like no generation before us ever has. It’s time for us to show the world how good it’s really meant to be. This book is for the millennial conscious leaders and entrepreneurs- those ushering in the new paradigm through their work, art, businesses, leadership.
