Millenial Perspective on Work/Life Balance

Millennials...they're numerous, they're the future, and they know it. Their preferences, values and needs matter and will increasingly impact talent decisions and business outcomes. Can the millennial "work/life perspective" and an organization's "business balance" be compatible? Can you adapt company culture, managerial roles and your own mindset? This session will use an experiential approach to bring clarity to these issues. You will be engaged in discussions, collaborative activities and quick, fun interactive challenges designed to: 

1. Understand generational differences on life experiences.

2. Envision possibilities of the new "work/life blend" world. 

3.Take the risk to make crucial changes for the continued success of your organization.

Pre-Registration and payment of $139 is required, and can be done online.

SpireFest fundraiser for the University of Saint Mary

 

This year marks the 14th anniversary of SpireFest, the largest scholarship fundraiser at the University of Saint Mary. Each year, SpireFest brings over 500 guests together—with a goal to raise more than $200,000 for USM student scholarships. The event consists of live entertainment, a live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, fun red carpet activities, and much more!

Please join us on April 1, 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza to support the students of the University of Saint Mary. Ninety-nine percent of our students receive financial assistance. More than 40 percent of our student body represent the first generation of their families to attend college, and just over 43% qualify for low-income federal aid.

Without scholarships, college would be merely a dream for many of these students. Instead, it’s reality. Future nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, moms, and dads—the possibilities are endless.     

This year, our goal is no different. Student scholarships are at the heart of SpireFest 2017, and your support is what will make this exciting event a huge success.

On behalf of Saint Mary, I would like you to consider sponsoring or donating an auction item to SpireFest 2017.

All proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships—ensuring deserving USM students have the scholarship assistance they need to complete their education and go after their dreams.   

We thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on April 1.

Saturday, April 01, 2017 6:00 PM thru 11:30 PM
