There is currently little consensus on the age ranges of these two generations. Millennials are generally thought of as having been born between 1981 and 1996, while members of the Gen Z cohort are believed to have been born between 1997 and 2010. As I said, there is little consensus, although the Pew Research Center and the New York Times are both excellent sources on it.
According to Mark McCrindle, a generational researcher in Australia and noted Tedx speaker, anyone born after 2010 is part of what is initially being labeled as Generation Alpha. There is a brief chapter on Gen Alpha at the end of my book. I say brief because the oldest of them are currently 9-years-old, so we are just getting to know them and how they will impact our world… but that did not stop me from asking them what they think! (More on that in a later blog post).
