The Culture of Age in Society and the Workplace

Register for this Spring 2024 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
This course provides a unique opportunity to examine the impact of ageism on your personal and professional development. Participants will engage in critical analysis of their own internalized age biases and how these may affect their interactions with others, both in and out of the workplace. The course will also explore the ways in which ageism affects people across the age spectrum, and how it contributes to marginalization and discrimination. Through a combination of guest lectures, critical texts, and experiential exercises, participants will gain insight into the experiences of people from different generations. They will also develop the skills and tools necessary for effective communication across generations and reducing ageism in multigenerational spaces. Whether you are seeking to improve your understanding of the dynamics of today’s workplace or exploring new opportunities to engage with others, this course will provide you with a better understanding of how ageism impacts society and how to reduce its effects in personal and professional settings.  Spring 2024 tuition is $699. 
Registration at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
