Conference Theme: Bigger, Bolder, Older: Promoting Innovation for All Ages
As more of us live longer and, in many cases, healthier lives, our country and our communities have an exciting opportunity to reimagine aging in America. This means finding new ways to enable more of us to contribute longer and harnessing the power of innovation to meet the needs of the most frail and isolated among us.
It also means speaking up, championing issues that matter to older people, helping others understand that aging is a lifelong process relevant to a wide range of issues.
To accomplish this, we need to make our big tent even bigger. In 2020, the GIA Annual Conference will highlight exciting initiatives and ideas relevant not just to traditional aging funders, but also to those who work on health and mental health; children, families, and intergenerational opportunities; mobility and transportation; rural issues; education; employment and economic security; and much more.
This bold and expansive perspective on our common work helps us bring an aging lens to more projects, pointing us to new partners and creating a broader philanthropic constituency committed to better ways to responding to an older America. We hope you will join us in Austin!
