4 Generations Event: Leading through Adversity
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, DC, November 2, 2015 – On Friday, December 4, 2015, Leaders in Energy will host its second annual 4 Generation Event. At this event, we will recognize leaders in the clean energy and sustainability arena from World War II (1927-1945), Baby Boomer (1946-1964), Gen X (1965-1980), and Millennial (1981-2000) generations who exemplify leadership in the energy and sustainability arena. Our theme this year is “Leading Through Adversity.” Leaders will discuss how they turned adversity into success. The event will be held at The Bier Baron in Washington, D.C.
Shira Harrington, Founder and President, Purposeful Hire, is the keynote speaker for this event. She will explore the changing world of work and the impact multigenerations are having on the workforce. Shira will discuss the perceived gaps, work ethic differences, value systems, work-life expectations, communication styles, and how relationships to authority differ among the generations. Building on the understanding of what makes each generation unique, Shira will highlight how the four generations can embrace what they have in common to work together to create a more sustainable world.
Clean energy and sustainability leaders representing the World War II, Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Millennial generations will share their experiences on how they have achieved success through overcoming adversity in their careers.
The presentation will be followed by a Networking Reception. More information about the event can be found on the Leaders in Energy web site https://leadersinenergy.org/.
