Omaha Table Talk: Ageism

March 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Can too much experience be a bad thing? Would companies creating job posts that seek out younger applicants be considered age discrimination? Why is it so hard to prove ageism? With some politicians determined to end Social Security and seniors losing pensions, how does ageism affect people looking to go back to work? Tough and important questions.

Talk with us on Tuesday March 12th as we look into these questions and more. It is reported that the percentage of people over the age of 65 in the US will increase from 18% to almost 30% by 2060. That’s a big number of people that can’t be left out of inclusive conversations. Are we doing enough?

Omaha Table Talk is a program which ensures everyone has a seat at the table – inviting all to take part in an open and honest dialogue about race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference, while enjoying a complimentary meal.

This event is free, open to the public (age 15 and older), ASL interpretation available, wheelchair accessible, and vegan/allergy-friendly. Registration is strongly encouraged so that specific diet requirements can be taken into account.

Please address questions or concerns about this event to info@inclusive-communities.org.
