The Age of Isms
TEDxMelbourne presents The Age Of ISMs with Ashton Applewhite
You probably do it without even noticing. Every day we say things, ageist things, that undermine our ability to thrive. Things like “I can’t find my car keys, I must be getting old” or “Millennials have a poor work ethic” without a second thought.

Ageism, like sexism and racism, is no longer acceptable. Let's deep dive our thoughts and behaviours and see where we've "self talked" ourselves into bias. Unless we challenge the status quo, it will remain.

This begins the first of many conversations to discuss negative ISMs and to make things right. Join TEDxMelbourne as we explore, discuss and debate ageism in our community.

Learn how to overcome the unconscious bias of ageism as Ashton challenges the cultural norm of our youth obsessed culture. Connect for an afternoon of ideas worth spreading with TEDxMelbourne and Ashton Applewhite in this intimate salon event.
