Event Description

Building Culture Through Generations: How to Tie a Multi-generational Workforce Together

Erica Briggs, Nonprofit Education Specialist, NAO

In many organizations today, the workplace is bringing together four generations, each with distinct values, beliefs and needs.  An employee born in 1955 has a significantly different perspective than someone born in 2005. This is the age range many organizations must now accommodate. It is a business imperative for organizations to honor and engage the experience, gifts and talents of all employees to best solve the problems impacting these challenging times. In this session, leaders will explore intentional efforts to bridge the gap so workers of all ages feel respected and valued, and the force of the work can be empowered by the best of all perspectives.

NAO is committed to creating inclusive learning environments and providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Automatic closed captioning via Zoom is turned on by default for all NAO virtual sessions. For other accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.

About the Presenter

Erica Briggs, Nonprofit Education Specialist, NAO

Erica Briggs is a facilitator of learning, DEI consultant, community caretaker, creative artist and author. In each capacity she is a storyteller, sharing stories related to developing a more transparent and fluid identity, embracing culture, and aligning with nature to better heal, grow and sustain mental health and well-being. A native Oregonian, Briggs has lived and worked across the country and overseas. Currently, she serves as a Nonprofit Education Specialist at NAO; Facilitator of Learning for the Anti-Defamation League; and is the founder and CEO of a small arts and nature nonprofit based in Troutdale.

When she is at play you will likely find her wandering in her garden, making a mess in her art studio, or hiking with her children to the nearest body of water.
