Throughout the world, millennials strongly captivate researchers, employers and business owners as they continue to expand their influence as consumers and in the workforce. Unsurprisingly, engaging with this unique generation has become a hot-button topic — one that continues to perplex an enormity of leaders.

On July 9, ACEL will answer your questions about “How to Properly Engage and Activate the Mysterious Millennial Generation” at the Dynamics of Leadership conference in Chandler.

Presented by Steve Erickson, Teach for America’s Vice President of Public Affairs & Community Engagement in Phoenix, the talk will uncover the best strategies for building millennial involvement. The drives behind the generation will be demystified, allowing attendees to identify new resources for their goals. By the end of the workshop, you will be confident in your ability to effectively tap into the millennial market on a business scale and engage in the millennial community for nonprofit goals.

Erickson is an experienced leader in this crucial topic. Currently, he effectively activates millennials in local universities and beyond to serve in Teach for America, in addition to overseeing engagement strategies for nearly 1,000 TFA alumni in Arizona. He effectively built the first Alumni Leadership Board in Phoenix, and doubled the amount of ASU and UA candidates while on the national recruitment team. 

Prior to his current position, Erickson served in the Phoenix corps himself. He is now married and has two kids with his wife, who also served in Teach For America.
