Other ‘-isms’ are banned, why do we tolerate ageism?

Font Size:

Host John Deeks and YourLifeChoices publisher Leon Della Bosca speak with Fiona Jewell, diversity and inclusion specialist, about ageism and prejudices in our society. Are young people upstarts? Are older people old farts? Fiona explains how older workers are often stereotyped as technologically inept and inflexible. The reality, she says, is that older workers are the fastest growing user group of new technology. Leon, John and Fiona discuss ageism, the ramifications and how we may all be responsible.
