The work style continuum

  • Ever wondered how you can text, message and craft a news release at the same time?
  • Used to working in your coveted office space – alone?
  • Or would you rather jump into the chaos of team management?
  • Are you committed for the long haul?

As a Boomer it may cause you to pause. As a millennial you’re wondering what the big deal is.

Dialogue between boomers and millennials

We’re going to heat up the summer with a lively point-counterpoint discussion between boomers and millennials at the new Colorado State University Public Relations Student Society of America Fundraising Breakfast.

The Colorado Chapter of PRSA has teamed with CSU and thinks you’ll find this discussion just as lively and entertaining as our past fundraising efforts.

Author explores psyches of boomers and millennials

We’re excited to bring you Susan Walton, M.A., APR, from BYU. Walton recently wrote: Demonstrating Value to Boomer Bosses: A Memo to Millennials in PRSA’s Spring Strategist Magazine.  

Walton will be joined by a lively panel of boomers and millennials to delve into the inner psyche of these two dynamic workplace generations. You might just be surprised to find some of those myths and mysteries of each generation aren’t that far apart.

Look for your chapter members to sound off as panel participants!

What you'll learn

  • The work styles of these two dynamic generations
