National Symposium on ageism and respect for
Embolden2023 is a National Symposium combating ageism and building respect for older people. The Embolden events were established in 2018 to embolden (build capacity and conﬁdence) service providers, community leaders and older people in ways that accelerate the pace of change.
Embolden2023 will focus on cultural dimensions of ageism and practical primary prevention strategies. This year’s theme, Words Make Worlds, draws on theories of language as a powerful tool for change.
The Program is structured to engage participants in sharing their experiences and strategies for change. We want to ensure participants leave feeling inspired – and with plans for leading change. Over 50+ presenters will contribute to a Congress of Older People’s Voices from the Margins, a [re]Design Café and interactive sessions exploring language and primary prevention campaigns.
Key speakers include Linguist Professor Kate Burridge on the power of Language and Dr Stephanie Dowrick on work, carer fatigue and burnout.
Held on October 3-4 at the Daylesford Town Hall (in-person event only). Early bird Tickets until 22 September from $20 for the unwaged to $450. Book here:
