Ending Ageism – Online Workshop hosted by Jeffco Library
August 7 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am
Mental Fitness Fridays with Jeffco Public Library: This month’s topic is Ending Ageism with Changing the Narrative’s Nancy Fingerhood.
We will discuss:
- Why telling a new story about aging and ageism is so important, especially now. The benefits to all of us as we age for 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.
Participants will leave with some concrete tips and tactics for addressing ageism as you encounter it, creating a better world for all of us.
Nancy Fingerhood is a Community Outreach Coordinator with Changing the Narrative in Colorado (CTN), a partnership of NextFifty Initiative and Rose Community Foundation to change the way people in our state think, talk and act about aging and ageism.
