Generation Apocalypse:

Debunking Myths & Promoting Collaboration

Location: Motif Seattle

The workforce is changing as boomers retire, Gen Xs solidify their leadership roles and millennials & Gen Zs enter the workforce at historic levels and begin to take on greater responsibilities in the workplace. What does that mean for your workplace? AWB Institute's first-ever Workforce Summit will give participants - business owners, leaders and human resources professionals - the tools they need to harness talent and leadership skills within a multi-generational workplace. Keynote speaker Rebecca Ryan, economist and futurist, will share how to plan ahead to fill workforce needs and better serve employees and their communities.
