"Millennials Rising" author Neil Howe at BYU forum Nov. 16

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.

The forum will be broadcast live on the BYU Broadcasting channels and at byub.org. Visit byub.org or speeches.byu.edu for rebroadcast and archive availability.

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.
