The EveryAGE Counts Advocates training program is a six-week program on how to better understand and address ageism in your own workplace, family or communities.
The training is useful for individuals or existing groups, and sessions bring together a 'team' of participants to learn flexibly, and in your own time over the six week period.
It is free, and has been designed to be flexible and accessible. The training has been developed to give you the skills and knowledge to lead our community in changing the way Australians speak and think about ageing and older people, which we have learnt is a key driver of ending ageism.
The six modules delivered in this training cover:
- Talking confidently about ageism: Framing and reframing (Understanding fundamentals and key concepts)
- Talking confidently about ageism: Framing and reframing (Recognising different perspectives in order to talk about getting older and ageism)
- Addressing Ageism: How to tell your own story
- Building connections: How to understand your own networks of influence
- Addressing Ageism: How to have a conversation about ageism
- Addressing Ageism: How to engage in online conversations
This knowledge and these skills are critical to better understanding ageism and how we can overcome it, as well as how to tell your own story and use your own experiences in ways that change people's attitudes and preconceptions.
The training is delivered online, and in groups that will support, reflect and learn together.
