MAKING THE MOST OF GENERATIONAL DIVERSITY:
LEADING AND MANAGING THE MULTI-GENERATIONAL WORKFORCE
A Breakfast Forum presented by
The Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership,
the Public Administration Student Association
and the International City/County Management Association
Henry W. Bloch School of Management
University of Missouri – Kansas City
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. Our distinguished panel, facilitated by center director, Dr. David Renz, will include:
- Gary O’Bannon, Instructor in Human Resource Management at UMKC and Chair of the State of Missouri Human Resources Advisory Board, who recently-retired Director of Human Resources for the City of Kansas City Missouri.
- Bruce Reynolds, MPA student and president of PASA, a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, also a member of the Development Advisory Commission of Blue Springs, Missouri.
- Amy Winterscheidt, President, Hallmark Corporate Foundation, and Director, Hallmark Community Involvement.
