New generations, international employees and people of diverse backgrounds impact workplace environments and communication.

Misunderstanding of differing beliefs, expectations, values, genders and cultures may lead to conflict. Recognize and overcome stereotypes by becoming aware of our inner thoughts and how they affect our actions.

In this workshop, we will equip ourselves with alternative thoughts based on facts. We will discuss ways we can expose ourselves to diverse people and work inclusively; learn to foster healthy communication and collaboration; discover communication skills related to gender; understand how younger generations change workforce norms; find out how five distinct generations can work together; and learn to identify key issues related to misconceptions and stereotypes. Awareness will lessen our bias, enabling us to view all individuals as valued, appreciated and even embraced.
