PD189060 - Generation e-Discovery: How Boomers, GenX-ers, and Millennials Work Together (or Apart) in Today's e-Discovery Landscape Generational conflict. Tension. Miscommunication. The interactions of the three major demographic generations of the late twentieth Century—Baby Boomers, GenX, and Millennials—and their impact on society and the workplace have been making headlines for a while now. Articles, think pieces, and clickbait on this topic seem to be everywhere over the last 15 years, as all three groups began to co-exist in the professional sphere. During this same period, e-discovery has come into its own as a unique and fast-growing industry. With its roots in the law (tradition-bound, slow to change) and in software and technology (fast-moving, maybe disruptive), and drawing talent from all age groups, what can e-discovery teach us about how the generations work together? What similarities and differences, friction points and synergies, exist between the groups? Does working in e-discovery magnify or diminish them? And which is the more important mindset: that of your generation or that of an e-discovery professional?

This panel discussion, with representatives from each of the three demographic cohorts, will cover topics of cross-generational work in the e-discovery space. The speakers will discuss personal observations, experiences, and strategies through guided moderator questions and intra-panel interactions.
