Millennials, that not-so-small group of people born between 1980 & the mid-2000s, are moving into the workforce and starting to have an impact on society. This group is the largest generation in the U.S., and not only the most diverse, but also the most educated. For non-Millennials, their texting ways and willingness to work from anywhere can seem a bit strange. At this RTP 180, it’s our hope to shed some light on the ways and habits of this ever important group.  **The speakers will begin at 6pm.
