About this Event

Challenging the Myths of Aging: An Encore Solution

Are you a business or community leader, an HR manager, or nonprofit volunteer coordinator who recognizes that our community and workforce is aging? Are you interested in learning more about the value older adults bring to the table? Do you work with, advocate for or communicate about older adults, aging and ageism? Are you someone who simply cares about addressing ageism?

For more than two years, the Del Mar Encore Fellows have been challenging stereotypes about retirement and aging, by example and advocacy. Supported by The Dayton Foundation Del Mar Healthcare Fund, they have been working with area nonprofits to solve significant community issues. Together, they represent more than 200 years of experience in our community and wisdom about how things work. Or aren't working the way they should. They have a lot share. Please join us on October 2 for the Del Mar Encore Fellows Report to the Community and a half-day workshop, "Changing the Conversation Around Aging."

Did you know that the words we use and the messages and stories we tell can:

  • Decrease bias against older people?
  • Increase support for more age-friendly policies?
  • Improve the health of all of us as we age?

The day includes the Changing the Conversation workshop with Janine Vanderburg, a FrameWorks Institute certified master trainer, to learn research-based messages and frames.

Sponsored by The Dayton Foundation's Del Mar Encore Fellows Initiative, the day will include lunch with a Report to the Community from the Fellows, who have spent the past two years working on major community issues: education; literacy; older adults use of technology to access healthcare; and diversity and inclusion initiatives in our region.
