14 December 2020: How To Connect with Gen Z In 2021

Presented by:   Will Stubley & Saxon Phipps (Co-founders - Year13)

This year has been challenging for everyone – especially Gen Z.

Year13 recently surveyed over 2,000 Australian high school students to discover the implications of learning in lockdown and how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the students plans for the future. They heard stories which were at once widely varied while also being bound by common themes of loss, struggle, change, resilience and gratitude.

In this webinar, Year13 founders Will Stubley and Saxon Phipps will reveal key insights from their upcoming Coronavirus & The Class Of 2020 report. They will explain how you can use these learnings to help plan your youth engagement strategy for 2021.

Attendees will also receive exclusive early access to the report before it's released to the public.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Discover key insights from Year13's Coronavirus & The Class Of 2020 report
  • Understand how these learnings can be used to better connect and engage with Gen Z in 2021
  • Learn how your organisation can empower young people to find meaningful work and education
  • Get your questions answered during a live Q&A segment at the end of the session
