Generation Y Perspectives

Discipline: Environmental Control/Life Support

Are you familiar with the famed Generation Y, or “Gen Yers?” Generation Y is projected to be 47 percent of the workforce by 2014. They were born roughly between 1977 and 2000, but that is definitely not their only defining factor. But who is this group, and what do they have to do with the future of the space program and the Johnson Space Center (JSC)? During 2007, a group of Gen Yers at JSC participated on a committee to address the NASA Headquarters strategic communications plan. Garret Fitzpatrick, along with his co-authors, created a presentation to share the Gen Yers’ perspective on their generation in conjunction with the strategic communications strategy released. This knowledge capture (KC) event is that presentation.
