Being Curious – Ageism is discrimination EveryAGE Counts
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree – $20.00
‘Be Curious: what are older ages all about?’
Ageism is not benign or harmless. It is a big problem because it impacts on our confidence, quality of life, job prospects, health, and control over life decisions. It is pervasive but often hidden.
EveryAGE Counts is an advocacy campaign aimed at tackling ageism against older Australians. It is led by a broad based national coalition of individuals and organisations committed to tackling ageism.
To better understand the beliefs and behaviours that drive ageism, in 2017 The Benevolent Society commissioned a three part research study The Drivers of Ageism to redefine the narrative of ageing in Australia and to drive positive change in economic, social, health and civic participation outcomes.
Marlene Krasovitsky and Anne Ring from Australia’s national coalition-led campaign to end ageism will outline;
- what ageism is and identify its impacts
- the purpose of the EveryAGE Counts campaign
- identify how people can get involved
- connect listeners to various resources that are available.
Target Audience – Ideally suited to aged care providers, and services concerned with the impact of ageism on older people and their service delivery.
Registered participants will receive the Zoom link 1-2 days prior to the event.
