Finding Common Ground: Uniting Generations in the Workplace

Finding Common Ground: Uniting Generations in the Workplace

Sponsored by Encore Boston Network

Join us on Tuesday, May 1 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm for a workshop in downtown Boston


Many nonprofit workplaces now include four generations of employees, volunteers and others supporting the mission. While every person is unique, age groups often share values and work patterns that affect behaviors and expectations.

Today’s nonprofit leaders must consider these key questions:

  • How can we create a welcoming culture where everyone is valued?
  • How can we encourage intergenerational learning and collaboration?
  • How can we prevent age bias against “older” as well as “younger” people?
  • How can we attract and retain people of all ages to join us in our work?

Bridges Together’s Founder and Executive Director Andrea J. Fonte Weaver, will help attendees answer these questions in a daylong workshop while we explore:

  • Workplace strengths and challenges of each generation.
  • Influences that shape their values and attributes.
  • Stereotypes that affect our perceptions and attitudes.
  • Research and theories that help us think differently about age.
  • Best practices that support age-integration in the workplace.
  • Action planning to unite the generations where you work.

Participation is limited to 25, accepted on a first come, first serve basis. This workshop is ideally suited for executive directors and leaders of HR and recruiting, program management, volunteer management, training and leadership development.

A small fee will cover the cost of food and workshop materials.
