Reducing Ageism In The Workplace

Hello Luke,

Since launching Ageless Innovators intergenerational co-mentoring, Chicago Innovation has been connecting innovators of all generations to bring age into the DE&I conversation, and reduce ageism in the workplace.  

Inspired by innovators across the age spectrumwe are excited to announce a new initiative, Turn the Page on Age, done in partnership with The Village Chicago and RRF Foundation for Aging. Its purpose is to confront ageism by demonstrating that you are never too young or never too old to do anything in life, and it will include:

  • Inaugural "Turn the Page on Awards" to celebrate innovators combating ageism
  • Events celebrating positive narratives around aging
  • Public awareness campaign to dispel myths and false narratives
  • Video series to showcase innovators who are "turning the page on age" 

In the meantime, below are past event videos and Chicago Innovation Award winners that promote the values of Turn the Page on Age. We hope you'll join us in spreading the word about this initiative.
