We asked young jurors from the Campaign US BIG Awards to debunk stereotypes about Gen Z professionals.

These are some of the misconceptions that frustrate young professionals we interviewed at the Campaign US BIG Awards in November.

Their responses below form part of a series, The Gen Z Perspective, in which we ask young advertising industry workers for their thoughts on trending topics and workplace culture.
