"Dealing with Different Communications Styles"

Lorelei Williams, Program Coordinator, City of Bend

There may be members from four to five different generations all working in the same office in today’s workplace environment. These generations consist of the Traditionalists (born before 1946), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Gen-Xers (1965-1979), Millennials (1980-1995) and also the new Generation Z (1995-2012). Not only do you as Administrative Professionals work with different generations at the office, but you are also working with different generations of parents, teachers, community members and the youth on a regular basis. This session will explore the different ways to communicate effectively despite generational differences. It will also incorporate some fun hands-on interaction for everyone, no matter where you may fall in the generational categories.

"Framing the Equity Conversation for Today and

the Future"

Mary Fertakis, National School Boards Association (NSBA)

What is equity? What does it mean in an education setting? And why does it matter for student success? This presentation will provide an introduction to equity principles for participants. It will also provide a framework for discussions on several equity topics today, and a lens to help frame future equity discussions in your schools.

Conference Keynote Address:
