Are women disproportionately targets of age discrimination?

Several recent reports suggest that people in the Fresno, California, area and throughout the United States have some areas to brush up on when it comes to how they treat older workers. For instance, one report found that managers are not thinking about having a diversity of workers who are older and younger as much as they might consider the importance of having a workplace with lots of differences in terms of race or gender or sexual orientation.

Weinstein effect creates spike in harassment claims

According to statistics that were summarized by a major source of entertainment media, the outing and subsequent legal troubles of the major movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has led to a spike in the number of sexual harassment claims regulatory authorities in California have received of late.

Most people associate diversity in the workplace with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. While the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission comes from that era, it protects many different workers: race, nation of origin, and religion are well-known, but many overlook the category of age. Specifically, age discrimination refers to workers over the age of 40.
