D&I Forum: Too young, too old... Is ageism still an issue?

There has been a real emphasis on improving equality in the workforce with many employers focused on Diversity and Inclusion.

Ageism has been previously deemed as the most socially acceptable form of discrimination in the workplace. But how prevalent is it?

In a survey by WerkLabs, over 53% of professionals over the age of 40 indicated experiencing ageism in their careers, most prevalently in financial services, advertising and marketing, and technology. Yet age-based discrimination works both ways, with younger employees often treated differently, and more likely to be dismissed, especially as a result of the pandemic.

Together with our experts, we will discuss what is being done to negate age-based discrimination and what companies can do to create headroom for the next generation without discriminating against more seasoned employees.

We are joined by a fantastic panel of speakers: 

 Kim Chaplain, Associate Director for Centre for Ageing Better 

 Corina Iordache, Senior Brand Manager at Suntory Beverage 

 Kate Clark, Senior Strategic PR Professional & Founder of KCPR KateClarkPR

We hope you can join us!
