Monthly Program


Different Perspectives:
Exploring Generational Diversity


Join SMPS NM and AIA Albuquerque  as we learn how firms can properly handle the intricacies of generational interactions, both internally and when marketing to and working with clients.

The current workforce is made up of workers from five generations, who operate, think, learn and interact differently.  With an all-star cast of speakers, we’ll explore workforce behaviors, engagement factors, marketing implications and workplace design.
