In this session...
A crash course on how Generation Z is poised to change everything about the future with purpose, innovation, and community. A presentation of trends/communication tactics: social justice, memes, TikTok, vernacular, and beyond. Ziad has spoken on the power of Gen Z everywhere from American Express to the Council on Foreign Relations to TEDxTeen – so you don't want to miss this.

He is the CEO and Co-Founder of JUV Consulting, a purpose-driven Generation Z company that works with clients to help them understand young people.

As a result of JUV, Ziad was named to the 2019 Forbes #30Under30 list at 19-year-old. Ziad is also a senior at Yale and the Founder of Redefy, a youth-run non-profit committed to furthering equality. He keeps himself busy trying to push the envelope, but also somehow still wastes too much time on TikTok. You can learn more about him via www.ziadahmed.me if you're interested!
