  • A call to action

You will leave with:

  • A recording of the training

The purpose is to equip speakers around the country with the tools you need to speak effectively about ageism, whether it’s in a classroom, to a community group, at a conference, or more.

Why this ending ageism speaker training?

Changing the Narrative’s training and presentation is based on our experience of delivering over 300 workshops on ageism in the last five years to over 17,000 individuals in all 50 states in the United States and 43 countries.

Our audiences have included older adults and middle school students, healthcare professionals and students seeking to enter healthcare, organizations serving older adults, policymakers and law students, media, funders and more. We know how to tailor presentations so they will be well-received, what objections you will encounter, and how to position your presentation for different audiences.
