Indicators for Successful Leadership: Valuing Age Diversity

Lately I have found myself in conversations with a wide variety of individuals and the topic of ageism has come up in conversation. Regardless of the context of the conversation (e.g., hiring in the workplace, setting government policies, purchasing health insurance, building community in urban neighborhoods, etc., the opportunity to confront the negative effects of ageism exists.

Successful leaders confront attitudes which promote age discrimination. They choose to lead by example and demonstrate that valuing all people of all ages is important to creating a culture that celebrates the human life cycle.

    Patti,

    Thanks again for your willingness to engage in a conversation with a young whipper-snapper such as myself. You are an encouragement to be around and your dedication to community is apparent. Thanks.

    Warmly,
    Christopher
