ADGR 7731 Gender and Generational Barriers in the Workplace (Fall: 3 )
To succeed in these times of economic uncertainty, organizations must maximize their human capital. The challenge in today’s workplace, where four generations of men and women work side-by-side, is to build from this diversity a stable core of productive employees. Achieving this requires overcoming gender and generational barriers which impede individual and group performance. Course generational topics include improving intergenerational communications; building cohesive teams; and employing targeted strategies for motivation, rewards, recruitment, and retention. Gender topics include strategies for overcoming male and female conversational style differences; leadership development; the glass ceiling challenge; sexual harassment avoidance; and the work-life balancing act.
