Ageism in Interfaces
The tech workforce is largely comprised of Millennial and Gen Z employees, people who grew up with the internet. There is a bias that comes with this digital immersion, and it’s lead to interfaces wrought with exclusionary assumptions – everyone knows what a hamburger menu is, right?! The Baby Boomer generation has nearly eight times the wealth of Millennials. Yet ageism in tech has led to overwhelm, frustration, and a lack of access to vital technology for people who can actually afford the premium subscriptions we’re selling.
