Call them what you will—Generation Y, Generation We, the Net Generation—but Erica Williams Simon says whatever you do, don’t call Millennials ordinary.
Simon is a Millennial social impact strategist and the founder of EWS Strategies, a consulting group that works with businesses and NGOs to engage young adults ages 18-30. She was named a World Economic Forum Young Global Shaper and was included on both Politico’s Top 50 to Watch list and the NAACP’s 40 Under 40.
Simon regularly presents at conferences and has appeared on MTV, BET, CNN, PBS and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Her work has been featured in the Washington Post, Huffington Post and ESSENCE Magazine.
