Changing the Conversation on Aging & Why Representation Matters with Stephanie O’Dell

Changing the Conversation on Aging & Why Representation Matters with Stephanie O'Dell

The Jen Marples Show episode 164 is here!

My guest today is Stephanie O’Dell, founder of Celebrate the Gray, and she is passionate about updating the age of models used in marketing and giving women their power back in their aging journey. Celebrate the Gray is for and about the 50-plus woman!

She has built a strong following and community of like-minded women who want to change the face of aging. She knows that women want to be seen as they age in marketing and want their faces, bodies, voices and opinions valued and authentically represented. 

Stephanie says: “We want our facies, bodies, voices, and opinions valued and authentically represented. I believe that being a woman today means not letting anyone define you. You define you!” ​​


Stephanie and I dive into the deep end and chat about changing the narrative around aging and the importance of representation in the media and why it matters. 

Stephanie and I discuss:

  • How seeing real 50+ women in the media is empowering.
  • The importance of your intuition and uncovering your purpose.
  • It takes all of our voices to change the aging narrative.
  • Stephanie’s journey to starting a modeling agency in midlife. 
  • Embracing freedom and self-definition in midlife.
  • Positivity and possibility in aging.
  • Modeling, influencing, and content creating over 50.

Stephanie Says: You’re Not Too F***king Old to start something new!
