Age Diversity in the Workplace

Call for help...

I'm studying to earn a master's degree in Organizational Development and Management right now. As I reach my last year (of the 2 year requirement), I begin to shift my focus onto developing a practicum learning project. Mine will have something to do with age diversity in the workplace (coworkers, managers and consumers included). In it's early stages, I'm wondering if people could comment on their experiences with working with various age groups (coworkers, managers, and consumers) and how communication differences, values, and other barriers have affected how you work with each other.  I'm also interested in the dynamics in the workplace occuring between long time agents and newer agents, between genders, intergenerational differences, and production level differences.

If anyone is interested in hearing more about my findings, please stay posted as it is likely I will be looking for more discussions in the near future of this kind.
