Eventually, when they are launched - which will probably be delayed - they will leverage their absolute intolerance for all forms of inequality into their professional lives.
Those career paths will range from law to public relations. And who doesn't know how the intersection of the courts of law and the courts of public opinion intersect.
In the influential book - "iGen" - psychologist Jean M. Twenge describes the mindsets and values of those we had been labeled at one time "Gen Z." That didn't stick because Generation Y became known primarily as "Millennials."
A major point that Twenge makes is that iGen, which represents 24% of the U.S. population, has been ducking many of the traditional rites of passage associated with entering adulthood. They aren't rushing to get a driver's permit as soon as they are legally able. They don't rebel against parents. They profess to have no time for part-time jobs, which would have socialized them to the world of work.
However, they eventually will take their place in the U.S. economy. Just as the with sheer numbers of Baby Boomers, they will have their say and be heard because they total 74 million.
Their assumptions about what should be standard could end the current legal and perceptual battles for equality of treatment and opportunity to all kinds of human beings in America.
When we encounter those of color or with a disability, we will see only the person. Age bias, even in a nation like America which reveres youth, could disappear. That has been an economic barrier which hasn't been taken all that seriously.
I hit up against it around age 62. In the New York Metro area, I, a communications vendor, became invisible. To survive, I had to reconfigure my boutique which does business remotely. iGen could go down in history as the generation which rendered age irrelevant in professional success.
