Answer the following questions in 100 to 200 words each. Provide citations for all the sources you use.

What is ageism? How does ageism influence the presence of diversity in society? In my readings this week I learned the meaning of ageism in our society. Ageism is the “prejudice and discrimination against older adults." (Racial and Ethnic Groups, Ch.13, pg.395.) Ageism influences the presence of diversity in society by restricting the elderly of what they are capable of, or presumed incapable of. Some may not hire an older individual because he/she assumes the individual will not be able to perform well in the work environment with others. The elderly are viewed as ill, fragile, and may have physical restrictions. Another way ageism influences society is the youth have a fear of aging because of the negative concepts of the elderly.
