Addressing Ageism in the Workplace
Addressing Ageism in the Workplace’ conference to be held in Dublin City University (DCU).
The event is scheduled for 17th November 2022, from 10am to 1pm with an audience of about 100 present and other people viewing the conference through a live online link. The conference will be composed of a diversity of representatives from all age groups in industry, technology, and representatives from a diversity of workplaces, policy and academia.
The conference is part of a DCU research project called POWER AGING, which is funded by the Irish Research Council (IRC) under the New Foundations programme 2022.
POWER AGING builds on a DCU report (2020) on ageism and bullying, which discovered that informed strategies, policy and practice need to be developed to address ageism and bullying in workplaces (Corrigan and Morgan, 2020).
This new project is a partnership approach between the Anti Bullying Centre (DCU) and the N.G.O. Age and Opportunity. It will provide strategies to promote economic, social, cultural, education and training benefits for older people in Ireland. This is in particular to address issues related to behaviours, attitudes and perceptions of ageing which currently can impact younger and older workers either in a negative or positive way. Our overall aim is to facilitate change to promote policy and practice, which supports positive ageing in our world today.
