Members of the Washington State University community are invited to attend two lectures by keynote speakers of WSU Extension’s 2005 All-Extension Conference.
The conference, titled “Creating a Culture of Change: Extension, Entrepreneurship, and Engagement,” will focus on the theme of entrepreneurship.
Cam Marston, author of “Managing Across the Cultural Divide,” will make a presentation titled “Four Generations in the Workplace: Communicating and Working with Each Other” at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1 in the CUB Ballroom. Marston will be discussing his belief that each generation has different interpretations of workplace issues, including loyalty, teamwork and sacrifice, that affect in-the-office interactions.
