It’s no secret that Hollywood is riddled with ageism and sexism. Lead characters over 60 are scarce, and older female characters are even more so. As actresses like Helen Mirren have pointed out, it seems that as male leads age, their love interests get younger and younger. AARP thinks that representing seniors of ALL genders and backgrounds is important, because we know that you have amazing stories to tell. Join us on September 26 th at the Paley Center for a panel discussion on sustaining a career in a historically exclusive industry. Be sure use the promo code ‘AARP’ to get a $5 discount on tickets. You can purchase tickets online here.
AARP knows that no one has everything figured out, and that is totally okay. Even if you know what you want to pursue, it can be difficult to figure out how to actually follow through. That’s why we’re introducing Life Reimagined Checkups, FREE two-hour sessions where we provide valuable tools to help you start the next chapter of your life. We give you access to insightful books, online activities and programs, lectures, and workshops that will help you gain the confidence and direction you need to move forward.
From job, health, and financial workshops, to community activities and fun events, there are many ways to connect with AARP in your community this summer. Here are few highlights:
