Challenging Ageism Workshops – Making Bristol an ‘Age Friendly City’
With our partners Bristol Ageing Better (BAB), we have recently been running a number of Challenging Ageism Workshops on Zoom. These are facilitated by Ian Quaife, BOPF Development & Engagement Manager and Bianca Rossetti, Bristol Ageing Better Programme Officer.
About the Workshops
The two-hour Zoom Workshops will enable participants to explore their own thoughts and experiences and look at ways of building new approaches to tackling ageism as an inequality. It will also focus on how ageist beliefs and actions affect both older and younger people.
The workshops also explore how the COVID-19 Crisis has highlighted ageist policy decisions and look at ways we can use in working towards a strategic approach to eradicating structural ageism.
The evaluation and feedback from participants has been excellent, and we continue to evolve the sessions and incorporate some of the perspectives and ideas for each new workshop.
“I loved the mix of ages on the workshop. It felt the right number of people in order for everyone to contribute.”
“I will think about indirect discrimination more like in a job adverts and images”
The workshops are delivered by Ian Quaife, BOPF Development & Engagement Manager and Bianca Rossetti, Bristol Ageing Better Programme Officer.
