The number of people 55 and older in Maine’s workforce continues to rise, setting the stage for potential generational snafus in the workplace. Whether in communications or expectations, how we connect with co-workers can be rife with unintended consequences. Is an ellipsis passive-aggressive? Are emojis unprofessional? One university study says we lose $37 billion a year because of crossed wires in the workplace.

Join us on Feb. 19 to hear from experts in the field.

This event takes place before the library officially opens, so please enter on Elm Street, located across the street from the METRO hub for easy public transportation access. The library’s bicycle racks are right by this entrance as well.

Doors open at 7:15 a.m. Program starts at 7:45 a.m. Street parking is free until 9:00 a.m.

Thank you to Coffee By Design, who will serve a complimentary selection of roasts and teas to attendees.
