Millennials are soon to take over from baby boomers as the biggest spending demographic in the world. The millennial generation is roughly those born between 1980 – 2000, the first generation to truly grow up with computers. Yet this demographic aged 18-33 could not be more different from previous generations. Their approach to life is not only impacting on popular culture but also on how old industries and societies in the East and West are evolving. The majority of millennial women are known for being highly ambitious, educated, optimistic, dedicated and are attempting to thrive in a well-rounded lifestyle.

The discussion will focus on how the Millennial Generation is changing the world for all of us. Are millennial women a force for positive change? How do they differ in the East and West?
