Discrimination is not always as immediately obvious or clear as you may think. As well as the more evident examples of being dismissed, demoted, or passed over for promotion due to your age, you may find that you are becoming the subject of workplace jokes, victimized by harassment, denied the training you need to develop professionally or receive performance reviews which suggest your work is at a significantly lower standard than is fair.
