For the first time in history, there are five generations in the workplace. This impact is more pronounced in journalism as resources shrink and organizational hierarchy flattens. What kinds of challenges does this present for today’s newsroom? How do generational workforce differences affect our ability to manage people effectively? And what are the traits, beliefs, and life experiences that mark each generation, influencing how they work, communicate, and respond to change? Join us in a discussion on how this once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon is impacting your day-to-day and career.
