Is ageism a worry in IT departments?

It is worry I’m every department. Balance of new thinking with proven track record will continue to be a challenge. The key is diversity!

It goes both ways, depending on the existing culture of the company.  I've observed firms where the older (mostly men) tend to diminish ideas and contributions of younger staff members.  And I've seen organizations where the younger guys (again, mostly men) tend to exclude older team members from opportunities to innovate.  Fortunately I am working in a more gender and age-diverse company that values all of its staff based on real contributions.  Bottom line, yes ageism should be a concern, just as much as gender and racial bias.
