Inclusion at Every Stage: Addressing Gendered Ageism (Topic Overview)Jul 12, 2023
Ageism can impact people of all genders, but there are specific ways in which gender can affect the experience of ageism. Gendered ageism covers the intersectionality of age and gender bias, recognizing that both women and older—or younger—workers may be disadvantaged in the workplace. These intersecting aspects of identity can result in compounded biases and barriers.
Few organizations consider age as a dimension of diversity, but it can be a key issue in the broader issue of gender equity. With an intersectional lens, companies can better understand age as another aspect of identity to fully support women at all stages of their careers.
