Thursday, March 8, 2018, 10 PT/11 MT/12 CT/1 ET
Dr. Damon A. Williams, Chief Catalyst for the Center for Strategic Diversity Leadership and Social Innovation and author of Strategic Diversity Leadership: Activating Change and Transformation In Higher Education and co-author of The Chief Diversity Officer: Strategy, Structure, and Change Management, explores the Centennial Generation in the connected economy. In the connected economy, value is created through the technology-enabled links between people, ideas, machines, and organizations. Connection matters greatly to centennials, who are enrolling on college and university campuses and just entering the workforce, with a unique set of characteristics in terms of diversity, motivation, passion, social consciousness, mental health, and their desire for connections. This webinar will introduce the concept of the connected economy, deepen understanding of the differences that can divide generations, and explore the benefits – and necessity – of creating and leveraging a multigenerational workforce, and preparing the Centennials for leadership.
