Fostering Effective Workplaces for Gen Z Employees

Apr 02, 2024 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The divisions of Student Affairs and Academic Affairs are pleased to offer faculty and staff this professional development opportunity on the topic of Generation Z in the workplace. Gen Z (aka iGen) is the second largest living generation in the United States after millennials. Born between 1997-2012, they make up the majority of our student population and a sizable number of employees.

What makes Gen Z special and how do we best work with them? Come find out through this engaging presentation.

In this session, attendees will identify general characteristics, values, and expectations of Gen Z employees, reflect on the challenges and opportunities of working in a multigenerational environment, and apply insights to their respective workplace contexts.

Lunch will be available starting at 11:30 a.m.

For planning purposes, please RSVP by Friday, March 22.

Slandie Dieujuste, PhD, Vice President for Student Affairs
Chris Hakala, PhD, Director for the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship and Professor of Psychology
