Wise Owls is an innovatory research body specialising in Age, Equality and Employment, having carried out independent work of our own, plus funded research by the EU - Leonardo programme, ESF and UK government bodies.
We carry out an annual F.O.I. research study into the incidence of employment ageism in the Public sector.
We are also building a library of facts, information and arguments about age and equality linked to other research institutions and networks.
Research: Our research is ongoing and most recently our Ageism in the Public Sector research project featured on the BBC’s Panorama programme. Our monitoring of the public sector continues alongside our efforts to lobby government to take up the duty themselves of monitoring employment in the public sector by age.
