Postponed - Breakfast Forum – Making the Most of Generational Diversity: Leading and Managing the Multi-Generational Workforce

Thursday, March 19 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am • Organized By Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership
4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO 64110


Today’s public service workforce, paid and volunteer alike, is more generationally diverse than has ever been the case!  Growing numbers of Baby Boomers are transitioning into retirement (even as they remain a significant share of the nonprofit world’s volunteer workforce), and Millennials and even the oldest of “Generation Z” are becoming a larger and larger share of the workforce.

  • What does it mean to effectively lead, manage, motivate, and support a workforce that brings together four or even five generations?
  • What are the opportunities and benefits inherent in engaging a workforce with this kind of diversity?
  • In what ways do our leadership and management strategies and practices need to be different?
  • And what must remain constant?

The Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership, in collaboration with the Bloch School of Management’s Public Administration Student Association (PASA) and International City/County Management Association (ICMA Chapter), is pleased to bring together leaders of Kansas City nonprofit and other public service organizations to consider and discuss, in a constructive and thoughtful way, what it means to effectively lead and manage the multiple generations of people who are at the heart of the work of their organizations.

This Breakfast Forum will launch with a panel discussion, followed by a highly interactive set of round table discussions that will tap the insights of all who attend this special public service leadership program.
