We have all read the statistics on the changing demographics of our population. Now more than ever, our workplaces and the communities we serve are filled with individuals with differing generational views, ethnic backgrounds, educational levels, and professional knowledge.

 

As L & D professionals, we are committed to bridging those differences in our organizations. Our intentions are in the right place, but we can’t be experts in every culture. How can we have the impact we desire?
