ASA’s 2019 Diversity Summit ASA’s 2019 Diversity Summit program will bring together nationally esteemed thought leaders in diversity, inclusion and disparities in aging to discuss the many ways in which inequality matters, particularly in the lives of older adults. Inequality has been and continues to be a great divider in America, and historically disadvantaged groups continue to face limited access to various opportunities, which negatively affects their potential outcomes. Inspired by the Summer 2018 issues of Generations entitled “Land of the Unequal? Economic, Social Inequality in an Aging America,” the Summit will explore the domains of economic and social inequality.
Specialty Sessions at Aging in America Panel of Pundits | $10,000 (exclusive) & $5,000 partial
Convened and moderated by past ASA Board Chair Robert Blancato, the Panel of Pundits brings together policy experts to present and analyze political and policy issues that concern older people. What is the aging agenda? Will Social Security remain untouched? Will efforts to block grant Medicaid succeed? What is in store for Medicare and Medicare Advantage? Will the reauthorization of the Older Americans Act be timid or bold? Will long-term care even register as an issue this year? Will the ACA get further dismantled? These questions and more will be addressed. ASA Chairs’ Lectures | $5,000 ASA Chairs’ Lectures offer sponsors a direct connection with recognized leaders in aging.
