Are you ready for some 'straight talk' on an issue that will impact every marketer in their lifetime? Then join us on Thursday, Dec. 12th as we host an interactive panel discussion on the topic of Ageism in Marketing.

The majority of the ageism topic has focused on the experienced spectrum. In an industry survey 2 years ago a majority of advertising, marketing, and related communication employees were under the age of 45. In fact, the median was around 39, roughly the same as a decade ago(Source AdAge Nov 2018). So where did everyone go?

Beyond the concern of aging out of marketing, these issues also impact each part of the journey. Are people still considered 'too young to have credibility', and when does someone enter their marketing "mid-career'?
Are these issues more prevalent in Agencies or Corporate? What is the impact of digital technologies in creating an age divide?

We'll discuss it all! Special thanks to this panel of regional marketers that will share their story:

Panelist Marvin Mason, Crisis Prevention Institute

Panelist Pat McGovern, Ascedia

Panelist Erin Neuhengen, Bader Rutter

Panelist Heather Vaughn, CI Design

Guided by our fearless moderator - Martha Carrigan.
