As part of the third annual Age-Friendly Ecosystem Summit, the George Washington University's Center for Aging, Health and Humanities presents it's first of four themed installments, Inclusivity.

Overview

Diverse populations often experience discrimination and exclusion because of the intersectionality of their age with other identities (e.g., race, sexual orientation, ability, language). Inclusive age-friendly communities strive to ensure that services, opportunities, information, and respect are available to all - regardless of age and other characteristics that distinguish us from one another. Participants will learn how to engage diverse, inter-generational populations to improve equitable access to age-friendly services.

About The Summit

The George Washington University's Center for Aging, Health and Humanities is hosting the third annual Age-Friendly Ecosystem Summit virtually this fall. This free, regional, collaborative event will be held in partnership with Age-Friendly Alexandria, Arlington, DC, Howard County, Hyattsville, Montgomery County, and the Georgetown University Aging & Health Program.

This year we will be hosting four two-hour blocks over four days. Taking place September 26 through October 4, the events will be grouped by four themes that cross-cut age-friendly initiatives: ageism, inclusivity, communications, and creativity. Please make plans to join us for any or all sessions, as your schedule allows.
