Are you looking for a friendly and collaborative opportunity for knowledge sharing? Join other Talent Development professionals for our Free ATD-Cascadia’s Learning over Lunch series.
This virtual discussion group is offered every third Thursday of the month from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. We will explore current trends and topics through small group discussions based on a shared resource, article, video, or podcast selected by a chapter member. We invite you to bring your ideas, experience, or questions to what we hope will be engaging sessions!
Creating Age-Inclusive Training and Materials
Please join us for ATD Cascadia’s Learning Over Lunch on Thursday, April 20th, when we’ll talk about:
· Creating age-inclusive training and materials, and
· Making sure age diversity is part of our DEI awareness.
Why the focus on age? Because today’s healthier lifestyles and medical advances mean most of us are going to live longer, healthier lives. And that means we’ll have longer careers, too.
But if organizations continue to focus on age as a limiting factor, they’ll miss out on the skills and talents that all employees can offer when they’re given well-designed training, respect, and opportunities for growth.
Get ready to challenge your thinking about what “aging” means; whether “generations” really define us; and what happens when we stop suggesting there’s a “silver tsunami” underway—and focus on the broad reservoir of experience and talent, instead.
Pre work for this session:
Please come prepared to be on video (if possible) and participate in small group discussions based on based on Ashton Applewhite’s Ted Talk, Let’s end ageism (11 minutes, 28 seconds)
