July 8, 2013 — A new Telefónica-Financial Times survey, the largest and most comprehensive survey of today’s 18-30 year olds, indicates that the “Millennial generation” –also known as Generation Y- are true believers in all that technology has to offer. The online survey, conducted in 27 countries and 6 regions with more than 12,000 respondents, probed into what today’s young adults think about technology, global and regional economies, as well as their personal and professional goals and dreams. The U.S. Launch of Telefonica’s Global Millennial Survey will take place at Americas Society/Council of the Americas on Monday, July 15, 2013 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.Confirmed speakers include José María Álvarez-Pallete, Chief Operating Officer, Telefónica S.A.; Susan Segal, AS/COA President and CEO; and Don Baer, Worldwide CEO, Burson-Marsteller and Chairman, Penn Schoen Berland. Emily Steel, US Media and Marketing Correspondent, Financial Times, will moderate the discussion. A cocktail reception will follow.
The survey’s findings reveal a generation that is constantly connected, tech savvy, optimistic and believe strongly that technology creates opportunities for all. Yet, Millennials also express concern about the economy, entering the workforce, personal freedoms, and their planet. Despite these concerns, this is perhaps the first evidence of an entire generation who now feel that technology can make a difference in the world. Join us to get a fresh and in-depth look at American Millennials’ views on a broad range of current issues.
This event will be webcast live.
