About this Event

Critically Thinking About Ageism

A NAIT Alumni Lifelong Learning Presentation

Ageism is increasing as a form of discrimination in our society; it was listed as the no. 1 form of discrimination in a U.S. based workplace survey. With the aging of our population, what are the concerns for our society and for our own security? This session will examine ageism from the point of view of the research and from your point of view - regardless of your age.

Free parking is available. Room location and parking passes will be sent prior to the event. Doors open at 6:30pm. Presentation begins at 7:00pm sharp.
