The Millennial Mindset: The Generational Story You’ve NEVER Heard
The Millennial Mindset: The Generational Story You’ve NEVER Heard

Jessica Ray is a Workforce Retention Strategist at Magnet Culture, a firm that works with organizational leaders to shift manager mindsets so they can better lead and retain today's new workforce. She is a former manager herself with first-hand experience dealing with common staffing issues, such as scheduling and attendance, inconsistent definitions of “professionalism” and “work ethic,” and the widening generational gap.

Jessica will give insight into bridging the generational gap by understanding the millennial mindset. Our real-life first-hand stories about the real issues on the T.A.B.L.E. (technology, authority, balance, loyalty, and entitlement) fuel an eye-opening discussion about today’s changing workplace that will shift your mindset about those you do life with.

  • Define the updated generational cohorts and why their definitions of “professionalism” vary
  • Uncover exactly why millennials think and act so differently in the workplace than previous generations
  • Learn how to see others’ views to reduce judgment and improve relationships and retention

Denver Southeast Rotary Club's Health Projects in Nepal
Denver Southeast Rotary Club's  Health Projects in Nepal

Jan is originally from Oklahoma and then spent 11 years up in Frisco, CO, before moving to Lone Tree in 2003.  Jan’s professional career was in IT for 17 years and then in mortgage lending for 14 years. 

After retiring from full time work in 2006, Jan found her passion working part time for Centura Global Health Initiatives.  She now calls herself a Global Health Volunteer. 

In 2014, in conjunction with the Kantipur Rotary Club in Kathmandu, Nepal, Jan began working on a Rotary global grant to improve the health of women in the rural district of Makwanpur Nepal.  After 4 long years, this project was just completed.  Health care workers in 30 villages were trained in how to examine, diagnose, and treat women with pelvic organ prolapse.  Over 6,000 women were treated in the women’s health clinics that were held multiple times in these villages.

In 2017, Jan’s Denver Southeast Rotary Club started working with the local 501c3, Global Dental Relief, to sponsor pediatric dental clinics in Nepal.  Her presentation will review these projects and outline how Global Dental Relief is now providing food packages to underprivileged children and their families in Kathmandu.

Longmont Rotary Charity Fund (LRCF) Annual Meeting
Longmont Rotary Charity Fund (LRCF) Annual Meeting

The Longmont Rotary Charity Fund (LRCF) was started in 1982 by visionary Rotarians to provide a tax-exempt structure for donations from local Rotarians and Friends of Rotary, and establish an endowment fund from which contributions can be made to local human services organizations in the name of Longmont Rotary.   LRCF is a separate 501 c(3) organization, with a separate board of directors, but all members of Longmont Rotary are also members of the Longmont Rotary Charity Fund.

Each year the Longmont Rotary Charity Fund (LRCF) presents an Annual Report to Longmont Rotary.   At this meeting the minutes from the previous meeting are approved, a financial report is presented, activities of LRCF over the past year are reviewed, and LRCF board members for terms beginning in the new fiscal calendar year are elected by members of Longmont Rotary.
