This is the first time in history with up to five decades represented in the workplace and sadly women have fallen victims of ageism. “Too young to know better” vs. “Too old to understand”. It's no doubt these labels might be overflowing into our decision making. Whether it’s around the water cooler or the boardroom table, it’s time to check outdated stereotypes at the door. Multi-generational teams are the key to smooth sailing in 2020 and beyond. Come to our panel where we will help flip the narrative to ensure we don’t go overboard when it comes to ageism innuendo.
