WASHINGTON — Millennial Week is underway in D.C. to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and career development for the youngest generation of working adults.
“We kicked things off with a ‘students for social change’ event,” said Natalie Moss, founding director of D.C.’s Millennial Week. “We engaged area college students to come up with ways to solve things related to food deserts and food waste in the District.”
The millennial generation, as defined by Moss, includes anyone born between 1980 and 1995.
Tuesday’s Millennial Week Hiring Fair at Arena Stage brought together more than 700 applicants and nearly 30 employers and organizations with specialties including the tech, health care and financial industries.
“Millennials have a pretty high unemployment rate,” Moss said.
