In 2025, 75% of the workforce will be comprised of millennials. This interactive session will provide participants with opportunities to identify supervisory challenges they are currently facing and applicable solutions to these obstacles.

Millennial supervisors must navigate the complexities of a multigenerational workplace, manage staff who work in the community or different locations, and mitigate threats to workforce well-being. There’s also the added challenge of generational stereotypes.

Millennials are often described as entitled and self-centered. However, through interaction and lived experience, we know millennials are confident, tolerant, and have heightened awareness around social issues.

The goal of this training and information exchange is to improve personal and professional balance.

Session Learning Objectives

  • Increase awareness related to supervisory challenges
  • Identify workable solutions
  • Strategize ways to apply meaningful solutions to identified challenges

About the Series

Supervisors play a key role in supporting and retaining staff, engaging diverse teams, and fostering a sense of belonging, so it’s important to make sure they are equipped with the right knowledge and tools. Being effective requires specific skills that are often unaddressed and underdeveloped. Because our workplaces are diverse in many ways – race, age, lived experience, and more – this series is grounded in equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) best practices. With EDI as the foundation, these sessions will give supervisors the tools they need to support and engage their team’s varied views, experiences, and capabilities.

This virtual learning series offers a two-hour learning and engagement session each quarter on an EDI topic that is tailored to the unique role of supervisors. Register for single sessions or save by purchasing the entire series.
