‘Champion Age Diversity’ Day is a global day celebrating age diversity in the workplace. The day also marks a call to action to not overlook age diversity as part of the D&I agenda. A work environment of equal opportunities is an enabled workforce, how will you help forge a multi-generational world?
The day is to celebrate all age group achievement, raise awareness of barriers and bias, but to also recognise good practice.

Why is it important?
The Forum is the global hub for age diversity in the work-place, and is a practical approach to ensure that organisations achieve the benefits and values of an age diverse work-force.
The business case for diversity is more prominent, but unfortunately, there continues to be challenges in breaking down barriers of age bias in the employment arena. Whether that is in the form of: negative bias, unconscious or otherwise; a lack of opportunity for employers to access key skills and talent; poor retention and retraining programmes; or for policy support requirements.
No industry sector is immune to these challenges, and none are restricted by geography. We are a unique organisation with a vision for inclusion, to remove barriers through an application of practical service and best practice, achieved together with our ‘Champions’.
We are raising the awareness of the values and benefits that an age diverse work-force can bring to organisations, of all size and sector. More companies now recognise the improved performance impact, and are seeking to establish themselves as a committed employer for diversity, demonstrating those values, both for their internal landscape, as well as to external partners and wider communities.
As it is for LGBT, gender and BAME, it is wrong, unjust and illegal to discriminate against age. Join our Champion advocacy and achieve the values and benefits
We are celebrating Age Diversity in the work-force on June 11th. Please use the hash-tag hashtag championagediversity to raise awareness. We would also love to hear from you, whether it’s to highlight an employment barrier or a positive message of how you and your organisation value an age diverse workforce. This information is important to help the purpose of removing age bias from the employment environment.
