Advocacy Affinity Group

February 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Ageism is embedded in our culture and widely understood as a barrier to opportunity, contribution, and quality of life for people over 50. The Encore Network helps people shift perceptions and navigate the barriers created by ageism, but what about changing the system itself? We will define an advocacy agenda and develop strategies for changing policies and practices that drive or enable ageist attitudes, behaviors, and decisions. Together, we can build broader support for the changes we want to see.

February Agenda:
  • Discuss partnering with the Age Equity Alliance on their global forum in October, with a focus on our Employer Guide.
  • Celebrate the success of the campaign leading to LinkedIn removing its ageist ad. Is this a model we can use for similar efforts?
  • Quick update on POWADA advocacy initiative.
  • Review of next steps on Employer Guide initiatives.
