About this Webinar
Janine Vanderburg is the director and chief catalyst for Changing the Narrative, a strategic communications and awareness campaign to increase understanding of ageism and to change how people think, talk, and act about aging and ageism.
Ageism is in our minds and our institutions – and it impacts our health, our ability to work, our economy, and how we interact with our own clients, co-workers, and family members.
Join Janine as she talks about the impact of ageism, the progress being made across the country to reduce it, and how to better understand how ageism manifests in ourselves, others, public policy and popular culture so that we can work to reduce it together.
Janine is on a mission to change how people think, talk, and act about aging and ageism!
