The Millennial Shift

Since the time of my Healdsburg High School graduation ceremony in 1993, the speech topics have taken a dramatic shift from the what the students are learning about to what they are learning about each other, and, more importantly, the degree to which they are socially accepted by others, accelerated and facilitated by social media platforms, namely Facebook and Twitter. This is part of the Millennial Shift, in which the 13 to 30-year-old generation is quickly rising to take the lead or dominant cultural position in leading what the norms, values, and beliefs. The shift will be revealed and evident through the behaviors adopted by this generation, and will not complete until the Millennials have entered the workforce.
