Initial Post Instructions
If we look at the term diversity as different generational groups, we can include groups such as Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y.
For your main post, pick any two generational groups to compare and contrast. Think about what similarities and/or differences people from these groups have. Think about how they respond to technology, authority, political movements, etc.
Now to express your thoughts on these ideas, imagine two different individuals, one from each of the generations you picked.
Create a profile that addresses the following (feel free to get creative in how you present this material):
· What generational group do they fit into? Explain the criteria for membership into this generation grouping.
· Typical hobbies of people from the generation
· Major cultural/political events impacting that generation
· New developments in technology, medicine, infrastructure affecting group
· What differences and similarities you see between the two?
· What are some of the major differences between these generational groups when it comes to the work force?
· What strategies can be implemented to deal with the issues and overcome obstacles to create a successful organization?
Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least one peer. Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification. For example, did your peers point out differences you did not consider? How have you dealt with the barriers they noted in your workplace? How would your peers’ strategies work for your workplace? Provide some new advice to your peers for the issues and obstacles you noted.
