    "Different Generations Working Together"


    We have become a global community. Thanks to advances in technology we are now able to cross borders with the click of a mouse. This ease of reach also applies domestically. Embracing diversity is crucial to organizational success for a myriad of reasons. Chief among them is the belief that we can learn from those who are different than us and leverage that change in perspective. We can learn from one another, but first we must have a level of understanding about each other to facilitate collaboration and cooperation.

    This presentation is an overview of the impact of diversity and how to encourage inclusion in the workplace. Attendees of this presentation will learn about primary and secondary dimensions of diversity and how to encourage inclusion in moving the organization forward.

    The three key points the attendees will learn are:

    1. The impact of generational diversity on the workplace and how to modify our processes to be inclusive.
    2. The business case for diversity and inclusion and how to leverage its power to increase profits.
    3. The importance of modifying training and using it as a foundation to create a more inviting atmosphere which will help sustain diversity initiatives.
