Minimizing Ageism in the Workplace….
Date: September 10, 2020
Location: Virtual (hosted via Zoom)
Regardless of your personal assumptions about ability and competence, you certainly can’t discriminate against someone because of their age. Problem is, so many people in the workplace do, some without even realizing it.
In a 2017 study conducted by AARP, most workers between the ages of 45 and 74 express feelings of age discrimination in the workplace. Conversely, there has been a perception for quite some time now that young employees also face discrimination just as older workers do.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, by the year 2024, nearly half of the workforce will be over the age of 55. This dynamic workforce will span five generations: traditionalists, boomers, gen X, millennials and gen Z (with gen Y fast approaching).
It’s time to change the conversation about age. Join us in a discussion led by Hillary Kuenn focusing on the top signs of ageism in the workplace, strategies for dealing with ageism and aligning company values with employee expectations.
