PRSA Offering Free Aug. 27 Webinar ‘Diversity: A Matter of Gender or Style?’

Picked this up from the Hispanic PR Blog:

The PRSA Diversity Committee is pleased to offer the free webinar,
“Diversity: A Matter of Gender or Style?” on Friday, Aug. 27. Presented
by motivational speaker Mimi Donaldson, this
enlightening and hilarious webinar will focus on the different
communication and organizational styles of men and women.

Do you gnash your teeth in frustration or savor the differences with
humor? Your effectiveness as a professional
is only as good as your ability to respond to all kinds of styles.
Mimi’s upbeat presentation will focus on how to stop blaming the person
whose approach is different from your own and start bearing it with a
grin.

Webinar attendees will:

•    Understand how communication differences based on gender are
enhancing, not inhibiting.
•    Identify style differences based on gender, such as problem
solving, relaxing, socializing, concentrating and the benefits of mutual
respect.
•    Learn how to be specific about what you want, especially with the
opposite sex.

Please note that the registration form will request your
credit card information, but your card will not be charged.

Please be advised: the registrant only will receive an e-mail
confirmation that gives instructions for accessing the presentation. If
you do not receive your confirmation within 5 days, please call (800)
350-0111.
