Ashton Applewhite is an author, advocate against ageism, and a recognized leader in the field of healthy aging. She has been acknowledged by various major media outlets such as the New York Times, The New Yorker, NPR, and the American Society of Aging as an expert on ageism. Her viral TED Talk titled “Let’s End Ageism” is currently on the cusp of hitting its two-millionth view.
Ashton sits with Christina to discuss the common issue of age stereotypes, emphasizing the detrimental impact of generational labels and the importance of breaking down these barriers. Ashton challenges the notion that one’s worth diminishes as they age, and encourages listeners to embrace a more inclusive perspective on aging.
We hope that our audience will find inspiration in Ashton’s call to reject age-based assumptions and discover ways that they can contribute to dismantling relative stereotypes that fill the world around us, both professionally and personally.
