NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Millennials in Action

NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Millennials in Action

By: Kym Grinnage email

Millennials, also known as Generation Y, are defined as young people who were generally born between 1976 and the early 2000's. The date ranges may vary depending on which research study you read.

The one thing I can tell you is that if you want to have a successful business, entity, non-profit or service that will be sustainable into the future you need to have millennials on your team.

More about Millennials in a future commentary.

My mission here today is to say congratulations to all of the Young Professionals, or YPs, who participated in this week's HYPE Icons & Workplace Awards.

HYPE is an YP program of Chamber RVA. This year's categories were: The Front Runner Award, The Change Agent Award and The YP Workplace Awards.

This was an excellent display of YPs at their very best engaged in every aspect of the Richmond Region. The event was hosted by David Gallagher, CEO of Dominion Payroll, with special guests Mayor Levar Stoney and Social Entrepreneur, Kelli Lemon. One of the highlights of the evening was a very timely keynote address by Scott Wayne, Founder of The Frontier Project & Partner of Envoy Portfolio.

Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners. For more information on HYPE please go to: Chamberrva.com
