Advocacy Affinity Group

April 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

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.

April Meeting AGENDA:
We’ll hear reports and plan next steps related to these topics:
  • POWADA – net steps to support this federal legislation
  • Colorado – a bill to gather data related to workforce training
  • LinkedIn – what we’ve learned from this experience
  • Multisector Plans on Aging – how can we leverage this process to champion employment of older adults

This is a members-only group. To register, please click here.

If you have questions about the group, contact Janine Vanderburg or Doug Dickson.
