REGIONAL | Intergenerational Conflict: Trends and Opportunities

Is your organization experiencing the tension that comes with having an intergenerational team?  How can you leverage those differences to best serve your clients and attract donors? 
 
There are five generations in the workforce now – Silent Generation to Gen Z – and millennials are outnumbering baby boomers for the first time.  Welcome to the new world of the Intergenerational Workforce and Volunteers! Technology and demographics are changing how we work, how we fundraise, and how we recruit and train staff.  It is changing our boards to be smaller with few committees and our focus is shifting to peer to peer fundraising.  Join this members-only session to explore how to equip this diverse workforce to work for your organization.
 

April 15 Class: Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this class will be offered online via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed the day before their class with detailed instructions and the Zoom meeting link. Please note the time for the Zoom classes will be provided in the email. 

GCN is actively monitoring information from the CDC and health department and we understand that the situation is fluid, so we plan to be in contact with any changes.  

 

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the generational categories, their expectations, and how they work as staff, volunteers and board members. 
• Tips on how to work with all the generations, avoiding conflict and tension.  
• Best Practices for board governance, staff retention, and fundraising in 2020.
