Helping your Clients Deal with Ageism 

Oct. 31, 2022
Toronto ON

OBA Elder Law PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Join us for a comprehensive program covering all aspects of ageism in the workplace. The term “ageism” was coined in 1969 by Robert Neil Butler to describe discrimination against seniors. Elder persons face numerous sources of conscious and unconscious ageism in the workplace, ranging from being passed over for promotions, career opportunities, and training to forced retirement and constructive dismissal. This program will help you to understand the challenges faced by your clients, whether they are employers or employees, and gain an understanding of how to recognize and address issues unique to older adults. We will also provide an update from the WHO on Ageism.
