The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.

 

We’ve never had so many generations in existence today, six generations. Bridging the generational gap doesn’t have to be a difficult task. The generational gap is, broadly speaking, the difference in behavior and outlook between groups of people who were born at distinctly different times. Each generation grows up in a different context and, as a result, may have different expectations, preferences, communication styles, and perspectives/viewpoints. This workshop will examine each individual generation, develop an enhanced understanding of generational dynamics and generational viewpoints,
“We talk about generational diversity in ways we would never speak of other differences, and we do it without giving it a second thought.” – Haydn Shaw, 2013
