The campaign will train audiences in research-based framing strategies about aging and ageism and will advance effective and productive messages about older people through social media campaigns and through op-ed pieces and stories in print and electronic media. A core strategy of the Initiative is training influential organizations like Aging2.0 Denver Chapter and it’s members in Reframing Aging. This is information that can be used by aging stakeholders, advocates, startups in the aging space and seniors themselves. Facilitated by a Frameworks Institute Certified Master Trainer, the presenter is Janine Vandenburg who describes herself in as a social entrepreneur, community activist, facilitator, designer, boomer leading change, encore career champion, feminist, social change idea generator, and Mom!
