TED Talks With Group Discussion

In commemoration of Older Americans Month, this month’s TED Talk will feature a presentation by author and activist Ashton Applewhite, entitled “Let’s End Ageism.”

Applewhite recently received the Maggie Kuhn Award for her visionary leadership and advocacy in combating ageism and is the author of “This Chair Rocks.” Ageism refers to stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination directed toward people on the basis of age. Older adults are often portrayed on TV as doddering fogeys or burdens on society – reinforcing negative stereotypes.

Join us to share your own experiences, perceived gender differences, disparaging remarks directed at us and others, and what an all-age-friendly world would look like. The discussion will be facilitated by Harriette Mishkin, PV member and co-chair of the Marketing and Communications Committee.

Join us for another “TED Talks Penn’s Village,” in which program participants view a TED Talk together and then discuss it with the help of a social host who will stimulate and guide conversation. TED Talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are presentations from around the world in which people with a passion for a subject share that love with their audiences.

Have a passion for something others might be interested in? Willing to host an upcoming program? Find a TED Talk that you like and contact Donna Murphy at to discuss!
