Calling Out Age and Gender Discrimination
Kristen Shaughnessy |
• April 2021
Five NY1 anchors/reporters, with collectively more than 100 years experience in the world's top television market, filed a federal age and gender discrimination lawsuit in 2019. Their lawsuit was announced with a breaking news beeper from the New York Times and it has opened up a conversation about ageism as an implicit bias in our society. Kristen is urging companies to have diversity at the top levels and in their boardrooms, not just in age, but in gender, race, religion and lived experiences.
