While Gen Z are often mistaken for the millennials who came before them, this generation’s values and basic desires actually more closely resemble that of the “silent” or “greatest generation” (born before 1946). This resilient generation persevered through war, geopolitical turmoil and constant financial strife throughout their formative years. Its members stood behind their values, offering their service to support the causes they believed in. They sought stability and safety, and were motivated to work hard to build the modest but secure life they desired.

Gen Z, too, has come of age in a time where they have had a front-row seat to unprecedented global crises. They’ve been forced to learn not to take anything for certain. They are driven. They are purposeful. And they’re not going to conform to past standards.
