Global Leadership Forecast: Next-Generation Diversity

APRIL 09, 2019


Who is the next generation of leaders, and how will they impact the nature of work? As the largest generation in the workforce, Millennials are ascending into more leadership roles, but it’s Gen X-ers who now hold the majority of leadership roles globally. With an average of 20 years of workplace experience, they are primed to assume nearly all top executive roles over the next decade.  We found in Global Leadership Forecast 2018 that there are important differences, as well as similarities, in how these two generations are taking the reins and what defines their leadership experiences so far.

Join Stephanie Neal from DDI and Amanda Popiela from The Conference Board as they discuss why generational difference today presents a critical diversity issue and an opportunity for organizations to define new strategies for the changing nature of work and leadership.

Insights from this webcast:

  • Understand the unique leadership characteristics and strengths that define each generation.
  • Learn how to leverage technology and new development methods to engage learners from all generations.
  • Create a leadership strategy designed to maximize organizational outcomes by drawing on multi-generational perspectives.

Who Should Attend: Human Resource professionals in leadership development, employee engagement, talent management, diversity & inclusion, and strategic planning
