More from this event →

Too often, we talk about “Millennials” as if it’s a homogenous group, possibly comprised entirely of snake people. Thanks to new research from the American Press Institute, we’ll start breaking down various categories of millennials, with the goal of helping you better understand the next generation of news audience and how to reach different communities. We’ll also get a real-world sense-check from Mic.com’s James Allen.
