On August 1, 2017, the Millennial Summit or the "MillSummit" was held at the Chase Center in downtown Wilmington. The description of the event revealed a collaborative networking forum geared toward younger professionals that many of us have defined as "Millennials" or "Generation Y" (those 80 million people born between 1982 and 1997 who now make up the largest population of American workers). The MillSummit, which was planned by, among others, representatives of the State of Delaware, Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, New Castle County and City of Wilmington government, the Delaware Community Foundation, and both the Delaware Barristers Association and the Young Lawyers Section of the Delaware State Bar Association, boasted an attendance of 300 professionals under the age of 40 who listened to the Governor speak on issues directly affecting them in their work and home lives.
