How do our perceptions of age affect how we treat each other?
– Patty S.
We have to take a look at this and shift our whole take on what it means to be an older person, and also – perhaps even more importantly – what does it mean to be a too young and/or too old person?
I believe on top of generations of deeply ingrained ageism rooted in our particular strain of a youth-driven culture, it’s truly a marketing and media problem that is creating a maelstrom of misunderstanding and dissing causing intergenerational clashing—expanding the hype induced gap between all the generations; that is, it’s made up. It’s not real.
When it comes down to the critical basics, most of what brings us together across the whole wide range of the corporate world to our entrepreneurial ventures are because of our shared core values and visions for a better, more equitable future.
