We all experience intergenerational communication challenges, whether at work, at play, or in our families. It’s important to understand the different experiences of the generations, and different outlooks within a generation, so we can improve communicate with each other. This presentation by Miriam Works looks at a variety of generational milestones, movements and outlooks in America since WWII. We’ll share, and hopefully expand, a list of defining generational experiences and discuss how political and cultural events have shaped our own lives. The aim of the presentation and discussion is to increase understanding, avoid assumptions and develop deeper awareness and curiosity about a variety of American generational experiences.
Miriam Works is an arts and small business consultant and speaker working with museums, libraries, hospitals, parks and independent small businesses.
