Intersectionality & Equity in Aging

Date: Thursday May 9 

Time: 1pm to 3pm 

Join Illinois Partners for Human Service for “Intersectionality & Equity in Aging,”  a conversation about the importance of considering how aging is impacted by the historical marginalization of individuals and communities. While aging is universal, the experience of aging is deeply impacted by systemic oppression and marginalization of people based on race, gender, disability, and many other identities. The inequitable access to resources resulting from these disparities must be acknowledged and addressed in order to develop equitable solutions. 

This is the second in a series of  virtual training sessions on Reframing Aging. This session will include an introduction to the concepts of intersectionality and equity and a discussion on incorporating an equitable framework into programs, policies, and services. We will share real life examples and participants will have opportunities to connect and work with each other to apply these concepts in their own work.

Technical assistance is available after each training session to answer questions, address challenges, or assist participants with new communication materials.

Facilitators: This session will be facilitated by Illinois Partners staff: Adela Carlin, Senior Director of Training and Community Partnerships and Katherine Cavanaugh, Training Manager
