This exclusive, on-demand training is only available for Plus, Advance and Enterprise Alliance Member Beneficiaries. Only these organizational beneficiaries will be able to register for this training.


How often does your organization use generalizing statements, or terms such as “elderly,” or “demented?” Often, our communication in the workplace is infused with stereotypical language and bias. This can have a negative impact on the organization’s outreach in the community.

This on-demand workshop will:

  • Take a deep dive into the non-verbal and verbal communication styles in your organizational culture.
  • Address how to attract diverse clients, employees and consumers with the use of age-inclusive language that will drive revenues and help you meet your mission.
