But all of us have opportunities to address ageism, defined by the World Health Organization as "prejudice, stereotypes and discrimination based on age."
In this interactive, online workshop, you'll learn:
- What ageism is, and the harmful effects it has not only on older adults, but on all of us
- What the general public believes about older people and about aging in America
- Why telling a new story about aging and ageism is so important, especially now
- The benefits to all of us as we age of having positive views of aging
- How words and phrases that we may commonly use (e.g., "having a senior moment") can have negative consequences that we don't intend because they reinforce ageist attitudes and prejudicial stereotypes about older people
- Language that we can use
