With the constant change in demographics of the U.S. workforce, it is essential we are aware of the impact of five generations in the workplace. Millennials, now working age, represent a third of the workforce and 43% are minorities, with 30% being categorizes as “new minorities” including Latinx, Asians and those identifying as two or more races. Generation Z is further exploring diversity and inclusion to include freedom to express self-identity. Additionally, we are seeing more women assuming senior level positions in the form of CEO’s, CFOs, managing directors and equity partners. As the workforce becomes more diverse, leaders must demonstrate their ability to create an inclusive workplace. In this session, we will explore the key characteristics of an inclusive leader and its growth in the accounting profession.
Some say in order to have a happy life and fulfilling work, you must follow your passion, but some believe that to be profoundly unhelpful. What we want, above all, is work that means something and you don’t always get that from searching around for your passion. This keynote address, based on Terri Trespicio’s popular TEDx talk "Stop searching for your passion," points out how this cultural myth is more limiting than you think—and how to tap your greatest resource to create a life that matters.
