Title: Millennial myth-busting: are we all just flaky and entitled?

As young women beginning our public sector careers, we ask – is aspiration about ambition and ‘climbing the ladder’, or is it about finding a purpose and contributing to your community? We tackle two myths about millennials: that our tendency to switch jobs, locations and even career paths makes us ‘flaky’, and that we are the ‘Me’ generation of entitled children.

We think it’s time to re-envision aspiration as ‘leading from where we stand’, encompassing the diverse identities of women in government in Aotearoa/New Zealand. We‘re interested in facilitating a discussion on crafting a purpose-driven career that embraces personal and professional lives and our super-diverse society — and why we think millennials are leading the way.
