Ageism is a crucial but less-discussed aspect of DEI, and a critical one for the philanthropic sector. Research shows that even when people exhibit lower levels of sexism and racism, they may be more likely to demonstrate signs of ageism. In this session presented by Southern California Grantmakers and EPIP LA, learn about how pervasive ageism affects people of all ages, and how people in philanthropy can help combat it in their grantmaking processes. Attendees will hear from panelists who can speak to how they work to address ageism in their work, and also how they’ve encountered it as grantseekers in various ways.
