Or is it the most arrogant and unmanageable, and perhaps a bit too brash for its own good? A group of up-and-coming Gen Y businesswomen and professionals debated their talents and faults with a wider audience. Their skills with social media and other technology mean Gen Yers are leading inventive firms. Nevertheless, a number of their older peers pointed out that these talents sometimes make them difficult to manage and motivate in traditional hierarchies. They are on the cutting edge, and maybe a bit excessive. But they are a generation that is not to be ignored. “We’re not saying companies should change, but they should give us goals; we don’t want to be working like our parents did.” Malyse Uwase Malyse Uwase Claire Boonstra (right)90 ❙ 2011 - WOMEN’S FORUM More info on our website www.womens-forum.com and our social networks

They can focus on the cause instead of themselves.” “When you see something wrong, you either ignore it, or you decide to do something about it.” Adi Balderman Priyanka Jain Les leaders de demain se construisent aujourd’hui grâce aux influences qui vont au delà de l’expérience de leurs parents. Barbara Bylenga, fondatrice et présidente d’Outlaw Consulting, une société de conseil aux grandes entreprises sur la Génération Y, a remarqué que l’idéalisme et le désir de rendre le monde meilleur étaient plus importants que le souhait de se constituer un patrimoine personnel. « L’accès à l’information en permanence nous rend plus conscients de ce qui se passe dans le monde, » a déclaré Pryanka Jain, l’adolescente qui a fondé et qui préside iCAREweCARE. Les réseaux sociaux et Internet ont permis aux jeunes de différents pays de se mettre en relation plus facilement et d’évaluer plus précisément leur développement professionnel. « Ils permettent de ne pas oublier le passé, » a précisé Marina Filiba, fondatrice de la branche argentine d’I Am Challenge. Selon Adi Balderman de Debate Ltd, « les femmes sont moins égocentriques que les hommes, elles peuvent se concentrer sur la cause à défendre et non sur elles-mêmes. »Courtney E.
