The Evolution of Ageism
As part of the Age Allies Programme, an Age UK London project funded by The City Bridge Trust, we are holding an event on 10 October at London South Bank University exploring how ageism works in us, how it affects our lives and asks how we can influence its future evolution.
At the event we will hear from speakers with insights into age, ageing and ageism. We will have the opportunity to ask questions and explore our own attitudes. We're delighted to feature the following speakers:
Anthea Tinker CBE, Professor of Social Gerontology, Kings College London, who will discuss ageing and the potential for related policy interventions in future.
Dr. Hannah Swift, Eastern ARC Research Fellow, School of Psychology, University of Kent, who will use her knowledge of people's attitudes to age and the effects of age stereotypes to explore our own ageism.
Richard Norman FRSA, Age Allies Programme, Age UK London, who will talk about how managing the Age Allies Programme has changed his understanding of ageism.
