Hello listeners! Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday! Today, we're bringing you a very special conversation about how we understand our identities online from the perspective of someone who spends a lot of time helping young people make those connections. This week, Caroline is interviewing her very best friend Vicky Nucci, a masters candidate for Higher Education Policy and student affairs degree at West Chester University, about why your social media identity matters and how we can start having these conversations with our employees. You may be asking how does this apply to me, a business owner? Here's why! Anyone that works in management or leadership is responsible for the identity development of their employees within their organization and a piece that often goes unaddressed is how much of that development takes place online. So while we will be examining this topic from the lens of student affairs, everything that we’re going to talk about today can be applied to how you may work with your interns or team members or yourself! And before you think, this isn’t impacting my employees, it is. If you work millennials, you’re working with someone who’s grow up with the internet and has had to find their place within it. We hope you enjoy! Download this episode
