The Winona State University CLASP Lecture Series will host “Five Generations in the Workplace: Gen Z, Y, X, BB’s and TRADS – Will we crash or unite?” with Kathryn Lammers and Jennifer Timm at 7.pm. Wednesday, Oct. 21, in Stark Auditorium 103 as part of the 2015-16 University Theme, Equity as a Human Right: Building Inclusive Community.
Lammers and Timm will speak about the workplace and how, for the first time in history, it will have workers from five generations. Lammers and Timm will cover the big changes and opportunities it creates.
The presentation will highlight various generational differences and strategies in order to take advantage of this phenomenon.
Lammers is an assistant professor of nursing at WSU. She received her bachelor’s degree from Kent State University, her master’s from Winona State University, and her PhD in nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Lammers has been a nurse for over 40 years.
Timm is an assistant professor of nursing at WSU. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing from Winona State University. She has been a nurse for over 11 years.
Both presenters have held numerous leadership positions and value the use of a cohesive team as a catalyst to improve quality of care and enhance individual and system-level outcomes.
This event is part of WSU’s 2015-16 University Theme, Equity as a Human Right: Building Inclusive Community. Equity as a Human Right is about upholding people’s rights, valuing diversity, challenging intolerance, and making institutional change around issues of social justice. For WSU and its communities, partnering around a university theme has proven to be an effective strategy for bringing faculty, staff, students, and community members to the engagement table. The year-long focus will enable students, faculty, staff, and members of the wider Winona and Rochester communities to explore the intersections of identities, cultures, and abilities.
This event is free and open to the public and is available for stream via ITV in UCR ST 116 on the Rochester campus.
