It is not uncommon for those living in the third stage of life to be categorized as the 55 or 60 plus group, which can subtly suggest that they are so similar they can be “lumped” together. This catchall approach implies that older people are more alike than different from each other, which is a stereotype. Generalizations or stereotypes can lead to ageism, or discrimination based on a person’s age. The truth is, we are all aging, but ageist attitudes influence how we think of others and even ourselves. Come and learn more about what ageism is, how it impacts society, and ways to promote inclusivity in our communities.

This event will be held April 6 from 9 - 10 a.m. in the Champaign Extension Auditorium at 801 N Country Fair Drive, Champaign, IL 61821. There is no cost to attend this workshop, but registration is suggested, but you can register at the event.
