Bias is Getting Old: Challenging age bias together to build healthier communities and economies

Tuesday, April 20th, 2021 | 8:45am – 4:15pm

We all believe our states should be great places to grow up, work, and grow old – places with healthy economies and vibrant communities that work for everyone.  Most of us are using our creativity and confidence to make systemic changes within our spheres of influence to support this vision.  Yet, we have been challenged to make broad progress in redesigning our systems of transportation, housing, care and community development.  We believe ageism plays a big part in the reason why. Ageism is not only bad for our personal and collective health, it also results in less support for the systemic changes needed to support us all as we age.  In order to build healthier communities and economies, it’s time for us to tackle the issue of ageism head-on, and we have to start this work with ourselves and our own organizations and industries.  We invite you to join the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging virtually on April 20th for one of the most important conversations you are likely to have this year!
