America's Missing Piece: Understanding and Teaching DEI's Generational Module

Within each generation – Gen Z, Millennials, and Gen X – there are many demographics, including women, minorities, and white men. Three generations of faculty and students exist within college classrooms. Each generation, and the different demographics within that generation, have profoundly different experiences with diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. Learning about DEI is no longer optional. Given the stunning intolerance that exists in America, educators must understand the differences between generations and demographics to reduce the nightmare of systemic anger, violence, and hatred. Understanding DEI through the unique generational lens is key to better preparing students for the multi-ethnic and multi-generational dynamics they face every hour of every day in their careers, and it is essential knowledge in every classroom.

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Participants learn to recognize the profoundly diverse lifestyles and core values of each generation.
  2. Participants learn to recognize the profoundly diverse experiences that individuals of different demographics have within each generation.
  3. Participants leave the webinar able to weave generation-specific DEI content into their pedagogy and classroom culture to better prepare students for the workforce. This is "the missing piece."
