A Letter From Angelica Sirotin on Gen Z

Gen Z is officially the largest generation on Earth, constituting 32% of the world’s population. Born between 1996–2010, we are the first true generation of Digital and AI Natives––we were raised alongside the Internet Era, the evolution of novel technologies as autonomous systems, chatbots, digital cognitive agents, AI-driven inventions, and were exposed to all facets of digitalization. Combining the fact that Gen Z is now the majority generation with the knowledge of our intimate first-hand experience of digital transformation, one thing is certain––Gen Z is the key to accelerating global digital transformation.

With this impactful information in mind, it is important to address that strategic and active mobilization of the Digital and AI Native generation is necessary in order to achieve a resilient digital future. Moreover, the grand ambition to catalyze a robust digital reinvention of public and private frameworks by leveraging the power of the younger generation is part of the inspiration behind the founding of the Digital Pioneers Network. Although digitally-inclined organizations exist, our value-driven approach that pulls from top minds like international CXOs, which cover a variety of public and private industries, as well as our massive global ecosystem reach, makes DPN the unique entity in the world that can engage with Gen Z and digitalization on a exclusive level.

Gen Z wants to make a difference in this newfound digital reality. According to a survey conducted by National Apprenticeship Week, “Over 80% also believe that a career in technology will be important for the future, with a third looking to future-proof their career by studying science, technology, engineering or maths subjects at school.” Moreover, Dell Technologies emphasize that, “80% [of Gen Z] aspire to work with cutting-edge technology, 91% say technology would influence job choice among similar employment offers, and 80% believe technology and automation will create a more equitable work environment.”

Not only is my generation driven by digital: more than any preceding generation, we are fueled by sustainability, diversity, ethics, transparency, and responsibility principles. These Gen Z traits will have massive implications for the acceleration of responsible, ethical and transparent AI implementations, the mitigation of biased data and therefore inclusion of more females and diverse populations in the AI and digital workforce, which will ultimately lead to the fast-tracking of global digital transformation.

Clearly, if we’re ever going to fulfill our mission of a resilient digital future, we need Gen Z, and we need this generation now more than ever. At DPN, we put this mission into motion.
