Conference theme: Gaining Momentum

The theme of this year's conference is Gaining Momentum for an Aging Society. There are 50 million adults over the age of 65 - a group that has the power and momentum to drive change, influence events, and accelerate innovation, but how effectively do we tap their power? And how do we make sure older adults have the support they need? At this year's conference, we'll be discussing and developing innovative ways to harness the immense power of older adults to drive our society forward.


Learn about the winner of the GIA 2016 Diversity Award, and find links to all the main presentations from the conference, including John Feather's State of Aging address, here.


Help us pursue our mission and strengthen grantmaking to support the needs and potential of older people.
