Welcome Back Open House in LeadingAge’s Backyard

Sunday, October 24

It’s been a long 18 months apart and it’s time to reconnect with one another to share laughter, swap stories, and be together at our inaugural opening event. Let’s kick off LeadingAge 2021 in the Atlanta sunshine with food trucks, friends, and the sweet sounds of musician Eric Dodd. And the most important ingredient of all? YOU.

All the Lonely People Film Discussion

Monday, October 25

4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

From the creators of the LGBT Aging film, Gen Silent

Please join Director, Stu Maddux and Producer, Joe Applebaum to discuss their new upcoming social impact documentary, ‘All The Lonely People’ which looks at the growing epidemic of social isolation and loneliness around the world. This special advance ‘sneak peek’ event will feature clips from the film as seen through the eyes of a diverse group who find answers through different solutions. In addition to a first look at the film, Stu Maddux will lead a Q&A discussion and ask the audience for important direct feedback to actually help shape the film while it is still being edited. This is an opportunity to be included in the creative process!

Inclusion Night

Monday, October 25

9:00 p.m. - Midnight

Join the LGBTQ+ Network for the 15th Annual Inclusion Night!

Come to the biggest LeadingAge celebration in Atlanta! This event honors those who have paved the way to advance inclusion in aging services and celebrates the work our members do every day providing high-quality services and supports for all. This year, we will pay tribute to LeadingAge’s first Black board chair, Win Marshal, who passed away last December. He was a huge supporter and attendee of this event, provided wise counsel and transformative leadership for our organization, and generously gave so much of himself to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion on our board and in our field. If you’d like to sponsor this event, please contact the LeadingAge Sales team at [email protected].
