Not Yet 20: Inside the minds of NZ's next generation of leaders

Friday 1:40pm - 2:20pm, Keynote Presentation

So what's *really* going on in the minds of Gen Z?

Activist, entrepreneur and GirlBoss NZ Founder Alexia Hilbertidou will present an inspiring, funny and surprising insight into the minds of NZ's Gen Z.

What are they engaging with online and what do they care about? How will they be impacted by the future of work and how should we be preparing them for it? How can we support the next generation of young leaders and how do we keep up with them?

Alexia will also share how GirlBoss NZ, the school project she started in 2016, grew into NZ's second largest organisation for young women in less than two years.
