Between internships and exploratory visits this past summer, I got the opportunity to infiltrate several work environments, and you will never guess what my takeaways were! So, here are the top 10 observations on the work world from me, a Gen-Z’er.
Aidan and Ash end the year - and Season 3 of Hold Me Back - with a topic that lies at the center of changing the conversation: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). After discussing the role Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and affirmative action play within DE&I, Ash and Aidan welcome to the show one of the country's leading minds in DE&I, Lareina Yee.
What started as a Hold Me Back episode on teen gambling took a turn into a fascinating conversation with the polymathic Dan Singer, one of the world's leading experts on the businesses of online gaming, casinos, sportsbooks, daily fantasy sports, poker, and eSports.
Aidan and Ash tackle the topic of diversity in an interview with Eboo Patel in this episode of Hold Me Back. Eboo is the Founder and President of Interfaith America - the leading interfaith organization in the United States - and was named "one of America's best leaders" by U.S. News and World Report.
What are adults missing about teens and their technology? Apparently, a lot! Aidan and Ash kick off their mental health series of Hold Me Back by welcoming Harvard Project Zero researchers Emily Weinstein and Carrie James to discuss their book, Behind Their Screens: What Teens Are Facing (And Adults Are Missing).
Students are agonizing over how every decision they make impacts their “narrative”. One decision that’s gaining attention and creates stress is which summer program to attend. There are thousands to choose from and many come with a hefty price tag. And lately, it seems like every prestigious university offers some type of summer program.
Just when Aidan and Ash thought they had shared everything there is to know about the college admissions process, they found out they had an opportunity to interview one of the brightest minds in the field. In this episode of Hold Me Back, they welcome on Jeff Selingo, a New York Times bestselling author of three books who has written about higher education for more than two decades.
Ash has spent so much time in Gen Z's world, Aidan felt it was time to return the favor in this episode of Hold Me Back. Over the summer, Aidan infiltrated several work environments during his internships and exploratory visits - and he had some things to say!
In this episode of Hold Me Back, Aidan and Ash continue the College Admission Series (CAS) as they welcome Lee Coffin, Vice Provost for Enrollment and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Dartmouth College.
