This program is a collaboration between the New Jersey State Bar Association, Rutgers Law School Minority Student Program (Camden & Newark) and Seton Hall Law Office of Equity, Justice, and Engagement.
Today’s workplace is occupied by five generations. While no group is monolithic, experts say that members of different generations tend to hold values and viewpoints that stem from shared events and experiences, and the effects of those shared events are often reflected in the thoughts, behaviors, preferences, work styles and worldviews of each generation. To leverage the talents and skills of an intergenerational workforce, leaders must be able to understand how the diversity in generational identity impacts the workplace, and how to mitigate intergenerational conflicts if they occur.
This interactive workshop will provide attendees with a better understanding of the five generations that are currently in the workplace, the intergenerational gaps that can cause conflicts in the workplace, and the approaches and tools that can be used to facilitate a workplace culture that effectively leverages intergenerational diversity and creates an inclusive, cooperative and respectful workplace.
This workshop is part of the Inclusive Excellence Law Student Summit, the first statewide diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) summit for law students. The Summit will provide a unique opportunity for the next generation of leaders in the profession to engage with attorneys and bar leaders regarding principles of DEI, to build an extensive network of peers throughout the State of New Jersey, and to demonstrate their commitment to helping to build a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable legal profession.
All attorneys are invited and encouraged to stay and network with students for the Summit lunch, which will include a keynote address by the Hon. Julien X. Neals, U.S. District Judge for the State of New Jersey.
