Like some other Gen Xers and parents I know, I have a love-hate relationship with technology. One of the things I love about it is how much easier it makes every day life – from shopping on-line for fall clothes, when the weather turns and you can’t find time to hit the stores, to getting the newspaper without getting out of bed. One thing is certain, while there is a lot of talk about the impact of Millenials entering the workforce and the fact that their need for connectedness is a driving force behind changing business models, how does this impact the subsequent generation – my kids and many of my friends’ kids?
Two inspiring events that I learned about this week are on the right path I think – one is run by my employer, SAP, and the other is run by a foundation and was featured in the Wall Street Journal, TechGirlz. I wanted to share their mission and find out if there are similar organizations out there. Anyone care to share?
