Title: Battle of the Generations – Work/Life Balance
Cost: $20 members/$30 non-members
Time: 5:30 – Networking; 6:00-7:30 - Activities, Discussion, and Trivia
Location: Courtyard by Marriott

Join Will Luera, Director of Improvisation at Florida Studio Theatre, as he leads both YLA and LWRBA members in exploring the similarities and differences in how Millennials, Gen-Xers, and Baby Boomers interpret work life balance, and what it means to each.

Under Will Luera’s interactive and engaging approach, we will explore differences, confirm stereotypes, and dispel myths of each generation to shed light on how each one tends to balance work and free time, the frequency and ways in which each tend to work, and other areas to help sharpen our understanding of other generations and improve our workplace relationships. 

The event will consist of a short happy hour followed by interactive activities, surveying, and discussion. Use this as an opportunity to meet YLA and LWRBA members and have both lighthearted and serious discussions on these topics!
