**Aging with Gusto Ageism Workshop

Program Description: The Vital Aging Network will provide a two-hour workshop to raise awareness about ageism and to identify ways in which participants can address ageism in their work and in their lives. The workshop is interactive and hands-on. Participants explore their own views, learn from each other and work together to build a new, more accurate and more nuanced narrative about what it means to age.

Participants will:

  • Examine their positive and negative views about aging.
  • Learn about how misconceptions, biases and prejudices about aging display themselves in everyday actions and interactions.
  • Explore how ageism impacts career choices and day-to-day work with older people.
  • Learn about how to incorporate new and more positive attitudes about aging in their work and life.
All programs offered by the University of St. Thomas shall be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. For details, call (651) 962-6315.
