You’re Invited To Ending Ageism Together
Presenter: Janine Vanderburg, J.D.
Ageist messages and policies hurt our financial security and physical and mental health as we get older, and also harm our communities and the economy. The good news is that we all have opportunities to address ageism. Join community leader Janine Vanderburg as she offers fresh insights into effective strategies for ending ageism, boosting age-friendly programs and becoming “AGEnts” for positive change.
Janine Vanderburg leads Changing the Narrative, a campaign to change the way people think, talk and act about aging and ageism. She chairs the Encore Network, a global coalition of leaders who champion the civic, social, and economic contributions of people 50+, and is an Encore Public Voices Fellow. She is a former member of the Denver Commission on Aging, and won the Mayor’s Diversity and Inclusion Award for her advocacy of older adults.
