NY CLE Credit: 1.0 Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias 

Description:
Millennials (and soon, Generation Z) are beginning to advance into leadership roles in the legal industry. As the younger generations find their footing, the Baby Boomers are waiting longer to retire, and Gen Xers are caught in the middle. Some workplaces can have three, four or even five generations represented in their ranks, and each has its own perspective, preferences and experiences.  
 
Join us for a discussion on effective cross-generational conversation and collaboration, led by Phyllis Weiss Haserot, President & Founder of Practice Development Counsel and author of You Can’t Google It! The Compelling Case for Cross-Generational Conversation at Work. Topics will include: 

  • Why should you care? The business case for cross-generational collaboration.
  • What are the benefits of cross-generational relationships and collaboration?
  • How can you most effectively interact with clients from a different generation?
  • What are the growing intergenerational trends and challenges to address now?
  • How do the different generations approach diversity initiatives in the legal industry?
  • How can each generation in the workplace leverage the experiences and competencies of the others?
