At the 2011 Leadership Conference in Sacramento, Calif., CALCASA will host a variety of workshops dedicated to Special Focus Areas for advocates working with survivors of sexual violence. Among those workshops is How Intergenerational Differences Impact and Inform Our Work.
For the first time in history, there are four distinct generations in the workforce: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials — all with their own perspectives, styles, and expectations. With this comes the risk of conflicting expectations, difficulties in communication, differential use of technology, and diverse approaches to problem solving and innovation. How does this current trend impact and inform our work as sexual assault and rape crisis staff members and volunteers? This three-hour institute will provide information about the qualities of each generation, the gaps between them and how to turn generational differences into opportunities.
Presenters: Leah Aldridge, Jessica Napier & Harkmore Lee
