Everyday Ageism

What is this? Why is this important?

Ageism is the interpersonal and systemic prejudice against older people.  Everyday ageism are the microaggressions experienced by persons 50+ in messaging, interactions, how a room is designed, how a website is designed, “putting seniors in facilities,” and we would argue most walkers.  

In a talk led by Dr. Bryant T. Marks, Sr., and hosted on ABC (Hidden Bias of Good People, 2021), the chief diversity officer shares older people have the most negative biases associated with them.

In a survey by U of M Healthy Aging Poll, they found 36% of older persons have internalized the ageist messages heard by family, friends, and the media.

Even how our society structured covid vaccination opportunities, how aging institutions say older people can’t use tech, and how little society pays or reimburses older adult services, ALL say something about our biases.

What does it have to do with your organization?  Likely access to funding, access to professionals, wages, even struggling with your own implicit bias and how that affects your programs.

Digital Community Building with Older Adults

What is this?

Organization development specialists have known community-based services, especially small non-profits, have struggled to strategically leverage digital tools and solutions–even websites.

But have you caught yourself thinking:

“We don’t need to do that, our seniors don’t know how to use technology.”  

Or maybe, “we are not investing in that because our seniors aren’t interested.

Most of our clients, even in the aging sector, have been guilty of these thoughts.

But it’s not true.  You’ve actually fallen into a digital ageism trap. 

We are missing out a huge opportunity to connect with and impact clients in a boarder way.  

During Covid-19, we noted at an alarming rate the number of agencies commenting on the lack of digital literacy their older people have and at the same time failing to strategically integrate digital spaces into their long term plans.  

We’ve created a few routes for you.  Click the green button to learn more.
