I'm 1982, so depending on the "Generational Scientist" and their specific agenda, I'm either a Gen Y or lumped in with the Millenials.
One gal who supports my team went to a diversity workshop at work and it focused on generational differences. She left the event a bit upset because it was a generational throw down. Harsh biases and generalizations were abundant. Takeaways:
Boomers - Bad with technology; retire already!
Gen X - Impatient with boomers and millenials, bad morals/ethics
Millenials - Young and inexperienced, get off Instachat, need to know their role and wait their turn
