Millennials, Gen Xers, Baby Boomers — all generations — are invited to hear author and demographer Neil Howe at a Brigham Young University campus forum Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center.
Howe, who originally coined the term “Millennial Generation” with co-author William Strauss, will speak on “Generations of Americans: Lifestyles, Higher Education and the Rhythm of History.” He will be available for questions and answers on the Marriott Center floor following his remarks.
Howe is also a historian, economist and co-founder of LifeCourse Associates, a marketing, HR and strategic planning consultancy serving corporate, government and nonprofit clients. He frequently writes and lectures about generational change in American history and about long-term fiscal policy.
He has written eight books on American generations, mostly co-authored with Strauss, including “Generations” (1991), “The Fourth Turning” (1997), “Millennials Rising” (2000) and most recently, “Millennials in the Workplace” (2010). He is a senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where he helps lead the Global Aging Initiative. He also acts as a senior adviser to the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about the causes and consequences of federal budget deficits.
Howe holds graduate degrees in history and economics from Yale University.
