In the realm of fostering a workplace that thrives on equality and respect, there's a crucial matter that warrants our attention: ageism. Ageism involves prejudiced attitudes, stereotypes, and discrimination based on age. It's high time we shed light on this issue and work collectively to create an inclusive work environment.
Our diverse workforce comprises individuals with a range of experiences and perspectives. Just as we value skills and talents, we must also recognize the worth that different age groups bring to the table. Age should never dictate one's potential or contributions.
In the session, “I Am More than My Age,” guest speaker, Shari Collins, will be presenting on the importance of addressing ageism in the workplace and how it can promote and encourage an atmosphere of mutual understanding and support. When we acknowledge the impact of age stereotypes, we can actively dismantle them and pave the way for a more harmonious and productive workplace.
