Season 2 of The Generational View Podcast continues with exploring the perspectives of those who teach and lead Gen Zers on a daily basis. As we have learned, Gen Z is just different... than any generation that has come before them. Maybe you’ve been surprised or delighted to learn just how much, but they are indeed. We’re about to hear a thought-provoking and analytical conversation with two Higher Educational professionals on traits, beliefs and behaviors that they encounter in their Gen Z students. Our Guests: Stacia Solomon is a proud Gen Xer with over two decades in the field of education. She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Management/Marketing and a Master’s of Education.
