Do you ever wonder:
> Why ageism is so entrenched in our society, including among older people?
> Who makes a profit by convincing us that aging is all downhill?
> Is it possible to work together to end ageism, or do we just need to accept it?

Join us for a conversation with Tracey Gendron, gerontologist and author of the newly-released Ageism Unmasked: Exploring Age Bias and How to End It. The book takes on, among other things, the "anti-aging" industry, generational stereotypes and more. She also digs into the history of ageism, how it developed and what we can do about it.

This is a chance to hear from one of the leading voices in the movement to end ageism in our society. Offered by Changing the Narrative, Denver Public Library, and Next Fifty Initiative.

We know that ageism in our society enables negative judgments about and limits opportunity for older adults. But the same can be true for younger adults as well. Heard any jokes about Millennials lately or any unfair critiques of younger political figures? George Barnard Shaw is quoted as once saying "Youth is a wonderful thing, What a crime to waste it on children."

We won't eradicate ageism from our society unless we recognize how pervasive and corrosive it is across the age spectrum. To help us unpack this challenge is Michael North, Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations at NYU Stern School of Business. His research interests have included ageism in the workplace and the growing multigenerational workforce. His recent focus is on Youngism, the impact of ageism on younger people.

This presentation is part of the 5th Annual Intergenerational Symposium. It is held each September in celebration of Intergenerational Month and hosted by RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies, Lasell University. Sponsors include Encore Boston Network; Massachusetts Gerontology Association; and Intergenerational, Learning, Research, and Community Engagement (ILRCE) Interest Group of the Gerontological Society of America.
