How does ageism influence the presence of diversity in society?
Ageism is a negative bias against a person or group of people on the grounds of age. [ Ageism is usually focused on two targets: young adults and older adults but ageism can affect employees of any age. Ageism includes attitudes and actions which relegate or treat as “not as good” a person or group for no other reason than their age. Research shows that women are likely to experience the
effects of such attitudes and actions before the age of 21 and over the age of 40 and that men under 18 and over the age of 50 are similarly affected. ]

How does the ADA address issues for the aging population?
Weegy: The problems the ADA addresses, how it is implemented, and its outcomes need to be better understood, in terms of how people who are affected by the law feel and what they do. [ The law may be successful if it changes attitudes, even if it does not as effectively change short-term behavior. It needs to be assessed by the study of outcomes, but its effectiveness can be improved only by the study of the process through which the outcomes are achieved, including how it influences the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of people with disabilities and their employers. The statute's first section, "Findings and purposes," begins with the assertion that "43,000,000 Americans have one or more physical disabilities, and this number is growing as the population as a whole is growing older" Congress then describes the "problem" of their place in civil society like this: People with disabilities have historically been subject to negative stereotypes that bore little relation to their actual impairments or abilities. As a result, they have been isolated, segregated, and subjected to discrimination in virtually all aspects of life. They have been politically powerless; disadvantaged vocationally, socially, economically and educationally; and have been thrust into an inferior status in society. Unlike people subjected to arbitrary discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, gender or age, individuals with disabilities have had almost no legal protection.Congress identifies "the Nation's proper goals regarding individuals with disabilities [which] are to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for such individuals" target=_blank rel='nofollow'>http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:7-iCvm78-wwJ:' target=_blank rel='nofollow'>www.adaenforcementproject.unc.edu/CHAPTER.DR5.doc+&hl=en&gl=ph ] (More)
