Age Equity Alliance (AEA) is a 501(c)(3) focused on increasing age equity in the workplace through education, and training. Our goal is to debunk age-related myths and stereotypes across the age spectrum, promoting the short- and long-term benefits of multigenerational collaboration.
AEA provides ongoing research, training tools, and outreach activities leveraging credible resources, policies, and practices. Virtual training consists of interactive, 90-minute modules.
“The sessions were a great introduction to the impact of ageism in the workplace. Sheila’s vast knowledge of this topic, along with the examples and stories shared, helped participants understand the value of age-inclusive workplaces and how they might begin to address it. So happy to have an organization that is solely focused on ensuring a workplace’s culture embraces, and is fair to, all ages.”

EveryGen for Employee Resource Groups
EveryGenTM partners with Employee Resource Groups (ERG) leaders to create age equity and inclusion in the workplace. Whether helping establish generational ERGs or working with current groups across other dimensions of diversity, our program offers best practices consulting on how best to partner with HR and DEI leaders to achieve goals, curated training, expert speakers, and ongoing coaching and consulting. ERG leaders have day jobs, too and EveryGenTM makes it easier to do both.
“Graycom was formed out of a desire to support the 50+ crowd within Dexcom through the creation of an ERG to support our workplace, workforce, and product. AEA helped to get us off the ground with a very high level of support, expertise, guidance, and professionalism as we set priorities, goals, and walked into the unknown. Sheila’s keynote address has helped to raise ageism awareness within Dexcom, and her continued consulting guidance helped us to work with senior management to minimize risks and properly address EEOC statements involving age equity. Through exposure to an expanding view of ageism, our Graycom ERG leadership has even grown to understand how ageism is not always all about the 50+ crowd! AEA’s guidance has helped us grow into to an expanded charter for Graycom, where we are working to raise age awareness for everyone!
We could not have gotten where we are with our ERG without the support and care of AEA’s help. Thank you so very much, Dexcom is better off because of your guidance!“

Age Equity Evaluation & Consultation
The vision for Age Equity Alliance is to establish Age Equity as a core value for every workplace and a fundamental component of every Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) strategy.
Age Equity Evaluations examine internal and external environments to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to an age-equitable, age-inclusive reputation. Based on the internal data provided, AEA compares age representation data within and across industries and makes recommendations for the best next steps.
