#Embolden 2023 National Symposium
The Embolden Symposium is Australia’s only national event combatting ageism and building respect for older people. Established in 2018, our aim is to embolden (build capacity/confidence) of service providers, policy makers, community leaders, older people and everyone who works with or for older people – to accelerate the page of change. Embolden2023 will focus on cultural dimensions of ageism and practical primary prevention strategies.
The 2023 Symposium will be held on October 3-4 at the Daylesford Town Hall (in person event only). Additionally, on October 1st, an online event will launch the #OldisBeautiful project, to coincide with International Day of the Older Person.
