Young Professionals in an Aging World
Aaron, a Doctorate of Pharmacy and MBA student shares how listening to a tech industry podcast has offered him a different perspective of his own niche. Bloated with inefficiencies, his industry has seen zero progress in innovations. In a field where earning tenure means respect, he and other young professionals struggle to be taken seriously.
How can young professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit gather the respect to have the real conversations and cause change in an industry run by older people?
"Don't let anyone stop you from bringing your ideas forward. There are some older people in business who do stay curious. They are open, they will be your allies." - Christopher Lochhead
