If we identify with youth and deny age, we are unaware of our ageism against ourselves and unknowingly support institutional ageism in our culture. Join three leaders in the field of aging to learn more about ageism, how it happens, what keeps it going and how to bring it to an end.

Dr. Connie Zweig, bestselling author of The Inner Work of Age: Shifting from Role to Soul, shows us how to meet our “inner ageist,” which has profound consequences for our self-acceptance, health, and capacity to discover the treasures of late life.

Ashton Applewhite, through her classic on ageism, This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, launched a worldwide crusade against ageism and woke up millions of people to the fight for age justice. Together for the first time, Connie and Ashton will explore the inner and outer worlds of ageism — and why both inner work and social activism are needed now, when for the first time in history there are more people over 60 than under 18.

You won’t want to miss this exceptional discussion between two leaders in the field – moderated by a third thought leader, Harry (Rick) Moody, author, lecturer and renowned gerontologist. Offered by Encore Boston Network in partnership with the Encore Network.
