At LeadingAge we believe in embracing the full spectrum of lived experience. Disrupting ageism means acknowledging the challenges and gifts that come with age and working toward a sector and society that embraces individuals of every age and every ability.
Guided by Our Vision
We understand that everyone is different, and each individual’s experience of growing older is different. Ageism, or discrimination based on age, perpetuates pervasive stereotypes that demean the individual and impact quality of life. Guided by our vision, An America Freed from Ageism, LeadingAge offers resources designed to help organizations and individuals disrupt ageism and embrace age-inclusion in work and life.
