Washington, DC 20045

Join us for a panel conversation about Gen Z's
fragility and the virtue of resilience on October 11th, 2022 at the National
Press Club.

Today’s youth are often
criticized for their fragility. Indeed, some experts argue that a fear of
failing and a hyper-sensitivity to safety keep young people from meeting the
normal challenges of life. Is this “fragility” real, or is this nothing more
than the age-old concern: “kids these days!” If young people are demonstrably
more fragile, why is this? Most importantly, what are the best cures for
fragility? Some experts say that by cultivating “resilience,” young people can
recover hope, creativity, and courage. Are they right? And how, in any event,
is resilience to be cultivated?

Join us on October 11th for a conversation with a panel
of experts about these questions and more.
