Dear BOPF Supporter
BOPF Challenging Ageism Workshop – Making Bristol an ‘Age Friendly City’
You are invited to join our next BOPF Challenging Ageism Workshop on Thursday 7 April 2022, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. Zoom registration link below.
About the Workshop
The two-hour Zoom workshop is aimed at voluntary sector organisations working with older people, businesses, students, older people themselves, and anyone with an interest in challenging the ageist narrative. We enable participants to explore ways to tackle age discrimination and ageist stereotypes through their own lived/professional experiences. We also look at how ageist beliefs and actions can negatively affect both older and younger people.
The workshop content includes: • Definitions of ageism • Exploring ageist stereotypes • A short quiz • A brief history of ageism • Ageism and the 2010 Equality Act, looking at direct and indirect ageism through a number of scenarios • A Top Ten Guide to Combatting Ageism.
The facilitators are Ian Quaife, BOPF Development Manager and Bianca Rosetti, Project Manager at Bristol Ageing Better (BAB).
You will need to register in advance for this meeting:
Thursday 7 April 2022, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
To give you an idea of what challenging ageism is about, attached is a guide to talking about ageing and older age published by Centre for Ageing Better.
