BOPF Challenging Ageism Workshop – Making Bristol an ‘Age Friendly City’

You are invited to join our next BOPF Challenging Ageism Workshop on Thursday 7 July 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

• Examples of Systemic Ageism in the UK

• The Equality Act 2010

• A Top Ten Guide to challenging and combatting ageism

The facilitators are Ian Quaife, BOPF Development Manager and Bianca Rosetti, Age UK Bristol Project Manager.
