How does ageism influence the presence of diversity in society?Note:
Ageism, or age discrimination is stereotyping and discriminating against individuals or groups because of their age. [ It is a set of beliefs, attitudes, norms, and values used to justify age based prejudice, discrimination, and subordination. This may be casual or systematic. The term was coined in 1969 by Robert Neil Butler to describe discrimination against seniors, and patterned on sexism and racism. Butler defined Ageism as a combination of three connected elements. Among them were prejudicial attitudes towards older people, old age, and the aging process; discriminatory practices against older people; and institutional practices and policies that perpetuate stereotypes about older people The term has also been used to describe prejudice and discrimination against adolescents and children, including ignoring their ideas because they are too young, or assuming that they should behave in certain ways because of their age.

I'm sorry that that wasn't a good answer. Please hold on while I contact an expert.Weegy:
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.www.diversiton.com/Ageism/AgeDiversity.asp
