Mountains Matter to Millennials: A Public Session to Hear from Our Region’s Young Professionals
September 8, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
A public session to hear from our region’s young professionals about their engagement with the outdoors and to celebrate the important role “mountains” play at personal, group, and regional levels.
The Pikes Peak region has recently been faced with the question: Is the region attractive to young professionals? This concern was succinctly covered at a December 2015 brainstorming session with Elevated Insights, and covered by The Gazette “Springs employers brainstorm workforce solutions” on December 19, 2015.
Our “Mountains Matter to Millennials” Session will explore the attitudes of millennials in the Pikes Peak region. What can we learn from this generation of citizens in our community? What role does our natural backdrop play in attracting young talent and how can we tap into the knowledge of young leaders to strengthen the quality of life for all? This meeting seeks to engage our young professionals, celebrate the important role “mountains” play at personal, group, and regional levels, and challenge our communities and organizations to play useful roles that include healthy uses of our outdoors.
