Diversity Community Sessions: Creating an Inclusive Community for All Ages
November 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm
Navigating the Generations: Creating an Inclusive Community for All Ages
Presenter: Lynette Chappell-Williams, Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion at Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine
The U.S. now has six living generations, and each has its own attributes, based on their collective experiences. Recognizing the needs and interests of each age group helps our community develop strategies to create a more inclusive environment for all, regardless of age. This session will provide an opportunity to learn more about the general characteristics of each of the age groups and to brainstorm inclusive strategies for the different generations.
Lynette Chappell-Williams, JD, is the Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion for Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine. She is a lawyer, by training, but has focused on creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces for the past 18 years.
