“It’s about who you are in the process….We have more generations in the workforce than ever before and their life experiences are very different….Look at the other person as a peer.” Mary Lee Gannon
Multiple generations in the workplace is a huge gift to innovators, because of the wide range of experiences and perspectives they bring to any challenge. Yet, there’s a tendency to buy into stereotypes of what people of a certain age are like, and these stereotypes can interfere with success. These stereotypes especially hit women hard.

You’ll hear practical advice on:
- Why people 50+ are the most adaptable and bring priceless experience and smart work processes.
- How to have a growth mindset at any age – and help your team have one too.
