Rethinking Age Discrimination
The experience of aging is drastically different from what it was just one or two generations ago. Yet age bias persists. Age stereotypes and discrimination harm both us and older adults we interact with at work and at home. In this interactive workshop, we challenge outdated assumptions and perceptions about aging, and play a game to practice responses to common scenarios.
Join us to
- Describe the impact of ageism on yourself and others
- Apply strengths-based strategies to interactions with older adults
- Examine why it’s urgent to reduce ageism
