Concern and attention to bias in the workplace has increased exponentially as workers of all generations have raised their voices about inequality of treatment based on gender, race/ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability and more. #UnconsciousBiasTraining has produced mostly mixed results and little cause for celebration. So a team from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School created a training program and “rigorously tested its effects” to see if the training would work as intended to change attitudes and lead to more inclusive behavior.

05/2019 Bridging Generational Employment Gaps With Skillsets Needed Now

03/2019 Multigenerational Pain Point: Is it Age - or Relevance?

Talk and anguish about age and ageism at almost any age seems to be skyrocketing. Even some of the Millennials say they are feeling older and concerned about their relevance. A 58-year-old longtime hospitality entrepreneur thinks he has hit on the next big thing with a resort called Modern Elder Academy in Mexico. Unexpectedly, the customers/guests span several generations and industries seeking the cure to feelings of irrelevance. What’s up?

This important trend on the increasing visible power of Boomer women is picking up steam. Aside from the positives, I point out some cautions in this article in the action steps toward the end – keep reading!

12/2018 Insights and New Clarity from a Tumultuous Year

2018 was a year of high highs, low lows and paradoxes for the world, politics, businesses and personally for many people. It certainly rocked our view of what had been previously perceived as normal. Reflecting back on 2018, I have reached some clarity and insight through my work and broader experience and observations that I’d like to share with you.

10/2018 What to Expect When You’re Expecting…Gen Z at Work

We’ve heard more than enough about every action and attribute of Millennials. In an effort to mitigate similar, often erroneous, perceptions of the serious, hardworking (and very different from Millennials) Gen Zers, also known as iGen, here’s a briefing on their upbringing and education as a foundation for their expectations and behaviors as they begin to enter the full-time workforce.
