  3. 3. Gen Z are purpose-driven, independent innovators, designing new methods, growing ideas and developing products. Their minds are set on change, upheaval, transformation and breakthrough—whether it’s norms, expectations, standards, definitions and beyond. To them, relevance does not equal ‘likes’; instead, they value the new and unique. While they aspire to live a beautiful and luxurious life, despite knowing they’ll have to work hard to attain it. To them, the challenge is fun—just a video game. To engage with Gen Z, brands must break away from binary norms, shift their identities and adapt to a new way of thinking, catering to real humans and their needs. By leveling their platforms, companies can welcome this new wave of consumers wholeheartedly to gain their trust. They must learn to collaborate with them, along with listening to and supporting their ideas. Enter The Gen Z Reality Welcome to the Gen Z reality—a new wave of influence that’s transforming society and business practices, approaches and mindsets.
