TED mainstage speaker, author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, internationally acclaimed spokesperson for a movement against ageism. Latest Talk: Still Kicking: Confronting Ageism and Ableism in the Pandemic’s Wake It doesn’t take much head-scratching to realize that much of our apprehension about growing older is actually about how our minds and bodies will change. Scratch some more and we uncover the social and political forces that feed and profit from these fears. Still Kicking, a 90-minute interactive workshop, delves into the nature of ageism and ableism, how they intersect and reinforce each other, and why it’s so important to dismantle the dread and dual stigma. To live is to age, and we age well not by avoiding disability but by adapting to it—a powerful, enriching, lifelong process that unites us all.
