That Was the Most Bizarre Meeting! (from The Future of Work™)

Ageism has to do with people being discounted because of their age… being seen as too young or too old. Treating people differently in employment based on things like age can be unlawful. Bias based on age is a reality. Examples of age-related bias are coded comments such as someone is “set in their ways,” or “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Being passed over for opportunity - assumptions such as older workers don’t understand technology and that younger workers are immature - are all examples of bias at work.
