Communications professional, crusader against ageism, author


Temple Rocks is a communications professional with decades of experience in senior leadership roles. Her book, I’m Not Done: It’s Time to Talk About Ageism in the Workplace, was published last year. She battles age discrimination and seeks to help people understand how it harms individuals, businesses, and society.

Aging is not a choice. We’re all going to age, but ageism exists. So we can all make a commitment to be less ageist and not practice ageism in our workplaces because it’s eventually going to happen to all of us.”
