Age-Inclusivity Within An Aging Nation – In this discussion with Wallis Annenberg GenSpace, panelists from various industries will have an honest conversation about the complexities of how we talk about and represent aging, while surfacing opportunities for stakeholders to change the narrative. The panelists and moderators will outline current solutions being implemented to support the aging and longevity space and where we need to go to bridge remaining gaps.

KEY PANEL TAKEAWAYS: 

  1. Our population is aging – a better, more inclusive future for us all depends on us confronting ageism and reframing the way we think about aging now. 
  2. Leaders across industries – business, technology, and entertainment – play a key role in challenging ageism and building an age-inclusive society. 
  3. Challenging harmful narratives about aging will help cultivate connection across generations and create spaces for older adults to thrive.
