We know that ageism in our society enables negative judgments about and limits opportunity for older adults. But the same can be true for younger adults as well. Heard any jokes about Millennials lately or any unfair critiques of younger political figures? George Barnard Shaw is quoted as once saying "Youth is a wonderful thing, What a crime to waste it on children."

We won't eradicate ageism from our society unless we recognize how pervasive and corrosive it is across the age spectrum. To help us unpack this challenge is Michael North, Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations at NYU Stern School of Business. His research interests have included ageism in the workplace and the growing multigenerational workforce. His recent focus is on Youngism, the impact of ageism on younger people.
