Breaking Barriers: Empowering All Ages in the Workplace
Have you ever experienced workplace bias or found your voice silenced for reasons unrelated to your performance?
If you haven’t, are you prepared for how you’ll manage it when it arrives?
Younger and older workers are especially vulnerable to age bias and are often excluded from hiring, development, and promotion opportunities.
Moreover, ageism adds a layer of potential bias and discrimination to other dimensions of diversity.
Why should people of all ages be concerned about workplace age bias, stereotypes, and discrimination?
Because if nothing is done about it now, everyone younger will age into it.
Ask anyone who has experienced age discrimination, and they will tell you how disempowered it made them feel–discarded, empty, as if they had nothing left to live for.
Today, people are living longer than ever before, with half of today’s children expected to live to age 100 or more.
Increased longevity, combined with the continued decline in birthrates worldwide, will result in fewer workers being available to fill future vacancies. The workplace NEEDS people of all ages to fill the talent needs. And anyone who wants to work should not be barred from employment opportunities.
Workplace ageism runs rampant, and you can expect it to show up for you sooner or later.
Age Equity Alliance (AEA) is working to change that.
AEA is committed to helping workplaces around the world understand the myriad of ways that age bias shows up in the workplace–across the age spectrum.
Age-based bias, myths, and stereotypes interfere with a sense of organizational belonging and safety, decreasing employee satisfaction, performance, and longevity. This not only impacts individuals, but it also reduces overall company performance.
AEA meets clients where they are, in a judgment-free zone, with customized support.
Through education, training, age equity reviews, and consultation, AEA increases awareness of unconscious age bias that disrupts workplace inclusion and employee satisfaction.
Our review of policies, processes, and employee culture provides insights that help companies prioritize strategies to foster equitable access, opportunity, and advancement of critical talent. AEA consults with leaders to assess age awareness and age friendliness–a crucial component for companies to successfully attract, develop, and retain the talent they need for the future of work.
