The first full year of CNN Dialogues culminates in Atlanta with a live event on the Millennial generation – how members of this generation are changing how we work, live and think. Born after 1981, ‘Millennials’ are more multicultural, less religious, more educated, and more technologically savvy than older generations.  

CNN anchor and chief business correspondent Ali Velshi will moderate the forum on “The Millennial Generation: Changing the Way We Do Business.”  The CNN Dialogue will be held at Georgia State University’s Rialto Center for the Arts, 80 Forsyth Street, NW, on Thursday, Oct. 4 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.  

Participants in the CNN Dialogues forum will discuss the role of Millennials in business life – how they are changing the American workplace, and how the most challenging economy in generations may be changing them. In addition to Velshi, the panelists for this public discussion include some of the nation’s most experienced experts on the Millennial generation in the workforce.    

Admission is free, but pre-registration is required for entrance to the event. Tickets may be reserved by visiting, or by calling the National Center for Civil and Human Rights at 404-991-6988.  

CNN Dialogues represents a partnership between CNN, Emory University’s James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights for a series of community discussions on major topics shaping our times, led by leading thinkers of the day.
