In 2019, CBS ran generation guidelines on TV and literally left Generation X off.
Try to Google research on Generation X and you’ll get a few hits but do the same for Millennials and you’ll have pages and pages of data.

Go into any corporate office and look around the room at the leaders and try to find the Gen Xers among Boomers and Millennials. Yup… same for high-ranking political leaders too.

This is happening everywhere and it isn’t ok. This is why we do what we do here at Modern Gen X Woman. We want to provide you, our listeners with everything you need to be seen and heard. No longer are we going to sit in the background and wait to get noticed.

Mimi and I (Jackie and I) aren’t going to be quiet and we’re going to teach you how not to be either.
