ASA Washington, DC Roundtable: America’s Workforce Is Aging. Does Anybody Care?

Event Date: 
09.27.2016 08:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time
Event Location
Address 1:

City:

Short Description: 

Join ASA leaders for a spirited conversation about the rapidly aging workforce

Full Description: 

Who cares about an aging workforce? Older workers sure do! But what about employers, unions, lawmakers, policymakers, educational institutions, funders and human service agencies? Who speaks for America’s nine million workers age 65 and better, and the millions more that are ages 50 to 65? Who is their champion?

Leaders from the Washington, DC roundtable of ASA (American Society on Aging) invite you to a spirited conversation about the rapidly aging workforce. Those leaders represent three of  the nation's preeminent aging and workforce focused organizations that are creating a better public understanding of older adults' needs and contributions to society—and subsequently to improve the lives of all people as they age. Roundtable representatives are ASA, Jewish Council for the Aging, AARP Foundation, and Jobs for the Future.

On September 27, David Gamse (CEO of the Jewish Council for the Aging and a Board Member of WorkSource Montgomery), Kathy Mannes, (Vice President of Building Economic Opportunity Group at Jobs for the Future, )and Emily Allen, (Senior Vice President, Foundation Programs and Vice President, Income Impact with AARP Foundation) will present timely information about aging workforce demographics, programs, achievements and challenges. Barbara Hoenig, Chair of the ASA Washington, DC Roundtable, will welcome you and facilitate the discussion. Barbara is also Senior Consultant on Mature Workers and Workforce Initiatives for CVS Health, and Chair of the ASA Business Forum on Aging.

Key issues for discussion include:

 -  Age stereotyping. Employers, the media and sometimes older workers themselves tend to portray older workers as technophobes that are stodgy, staid and stuck. Is that accurate? If so, how do we help older workers become more employable? If not, how do we shatter age-limiting stereotypes?

 -  Aging workforce demographics

 -  Obstacles. Roadblocks abound and may include transportation challenges, eldercare responsibilities, physical limitations, ignorance about effective job-search strategies, and more – much more. Whose job is it in Greater Washington to surmount these and other obstacles? From whence does program funding come?

 -  Best practices. Which public and private programs work well and by what standards? How do we build upon success?

All ASA members and individuals interested in ASA membership are welcome at this event.

REGISTER TODAY! Registration is free, but is required. Please log in if you have a record with ASA or complete the application form if you have no record. For assistance, contact Jutka Mandoki at jmandoki@asaging.org.

Short Description: 

Join us at this special briefing highlighting cutting-edge practices, programs and policy initiatives and research that better address the unmet needs and lack of access to services for LGBT older adults, their families and communities.

Full Description: 

Along with the increasing diversity of the older adult population, the number of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) older adults is growing rapidly. Recent research documents social, health, and economic disparities among these populations. To explore these issues, The American Society on Aging published the summer 2016 issue of Generations journal on “LGBT Aging.” Nearly two dozen articles showcased the cutting-edge practices, programs, and policy initiatives and research that better address the unmet needs and lack of access to services for LGBT older adults, their families, and communities. Responding to the increasing diversity in American society is an important step to promoting health and well-being of all older adults.

We invite you to join us at a (free) special briefing event to hear from ASA President & CEO Bob Stein, and our Guest Editor for the Summer 2016 issue, Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen, professor and director of Healthy Generations: Hartford Center of Excellence, at the University of Washington, Seattle. Fredriksen-Goldsen will moderate a panel discussion, featuring the following 6 experts who contributed to summer 2016 Generations:

  • Stephen Karpiak, Senior Director for Research & Evaluation, ACRIA, and Mark Brennan-Ing, Director for Research & Evaluation, ACRIA, Center on HIV and Aging
  • Aundaray Guess, Director of Programs, GRIOT Circle, and Katherine Acey, senior activist fellow at the Barnard College Center for Research on Women

Full Description: 

Please join us for a presentation and panel discussion on the landscape, challenges, and advocacy surrounding the eldercare workforce, as covered in the Spring 2016 issue of Generations journal.

Much of the cost of healthcare and long-term care in the United States is concentrated in a relatively small share of the population: many of those who cost the most to Medicare and Medicaid are older adults. Most of these “high-cost” older adults are living with multiple chronic conditions, and will require a workforce with specific skills and knowledge—of geriatric syndromes, family caregiving, supportive services, multiple conditions, dementing illnesses, and prognosis at the end of life.

The demand for eldercare services continues to increase dramatically, but the rate of eldercare workforce reform is failing to keep pace. New financial incentives are being tested and new service delivery models piloted, yet the way we recruit, train, and support those expected to bear the weight of these new systems has changed very little. A robust, competent eldercare workforce is not being forged; it is simply being presumed.

The arc of investment in the eldercare workforce is rising far too slowly compared to the arc of expectations for our nation’s eldercare workers. Conferences are held, research papers written, commissions empaneled and “innovation” grants fielded, but it is mostly apparent that in each of these, the workforce is at best considered an afterthought. Why is there so little sense of urgency?

To explore this question, ASA published the Spring 2016 issue of Generations on “America’s Eldercare Workforce: Who Will Be There to Care?” We invite you to join us at a special briefing event to hear from ASA Board Chair Robert Blancato, Generations Editorial Advisory Board Chair Susan Reinhard, and our Guest Editors for the Spring 2016 issue Steven L. Dawson, consultant and founding president of PHI in the South Bronx, New York City, and Christopher A. Langston, former program director of The John A. Hartford Foundation. Dawson and Langston will moderate a panel discussion, featuring the following six experts who contributed to Spring 2016 Generations:

Amy York, Executive Director, Eldercare Workforce Alliance; Daniel Wilson, PHI Director of Federal Affairs; Manmeet Kaur, Executive Director and Founder, City Health Works; Terry Fulmer, President, The John A. Hartford Foundation; Robyn Stone, Executive Director, LeadingAge Center for Applied Research; and Nancy Lundebjerg, CEO, The American Geriatrics Society.

Please join us August 5th for a timely conversation about ageism in America, and what can be done to eradicate it.

ASA’s Board President Bob Blancato will present results from the 2015 research "Gauging Aging: Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Aging in America." This report lays the groundwork for a larger effort to develop an evidence-based narrative about aging in our country and the needs and contributions of older adults. By comparing experts' views to those of average Americans, the report detailed a set of communications challenges to efforts to elevate public support for policies and programs that promote the well-being of older adults.

This session will also detail a partnership of eight of the nation's leading aging-focused organizations to create a better public understanding of older adults' needs and contributions to society—and subsequently to improve the lives of all people as they age.

Finally, Bob will discuss public policies related to addressing ageism.

Join us in this lively and provocative discussion about ageism—an attitude that permeates our society and inhibits optimal aging and quality of life for America's older adults – and what we can do, both collectively and individually to fight it!

All ASA members are welcome at this free event.

"Gauging Aging: Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Aging in America" Report

Full Description: 
You're invited to join ASA leaders for a conversation about ageism in America, and what can be done to eradicate it. Eight of the nation's leading aging-focused organizations have formed an unprecedented partnership to create a better public understanding of older adults' needs and contributions to society—and subsequently to improve the lives of all people as they age. This coalition brings together the American Society on Aging, AARP, the American Federation for Aging Research, the American Geriatrics Society, The Gerontological Society of America, Grantmakers in Aging, the National Council on Aging, and the National Hispanic Council on Aging.
 
Collectively we represent and have direct access to millions of older adults and thousands of individuals working in aging-related professions. Working collaboratively with the FrameWorks Institute as our research partner, our eight organizations are addressing public perceptions of older adults: who they are, what issues affect them, how they contribute to our society, and how society can best integrate their needs and contributions.
 
Our June 14 Washington, DC Roundtable will focus on results from our 2015 research entitled "Gauging Aging: Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Aging in America." This report lays the groundwork for a larger effort to develop a new, evidence-based narrative around the process of aging in our country and the needs and contributions of older adults. By comparing experts' views to those of average Americans, the report detailed a set of communications challenges to efforts to elevate public support for policies and programs that promote the well-being of older adults.
 
 
In addition, the public policies related to redressing ageism will be discussed by Bob Blancato based on an article featured in the Fall 2015 issue of Generations on "Ageism in America: Reframing the Issues and Impacts."
 
We invite you to join current ASA Board Chair, Bob Blancato, and past ASA Board Chair John Feather in a report on the results of our research to date and a conversation about the implications and opportunities for you and other professionals working in the field of aging. Welcome remarks will be made by Washington DC Roundtable Chair, Barbara Hoenig, Senior Consultant, Mature Workers and Workforce Initiatives, CVS Health, and Chair of the ASA Business Forum on Aging.
 
Participate in a lively and provocative discussion about ageism—an attitude that permeates our society and inhibits optimal aging and quality of life for America's older adults.

American Society on Aging Presents: Medicare at 50: From Generation to Generation

Full Description: 

Click here to RSVP

June 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Medicare. Since President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Medicare bill into law in 1965, Medicare has opened doors to healthcare and increased economic security for hundreds of millions of older adults, people with disabilities, and their families. In celebration of this milestone, the American Society on Aging (ASA) is devoting the Summer 2015 issue of its quarterly journal, Generations, to “Medicare at 50 Years.”

The issue, guest edited by John Rother, president/CEO, National Coalition on Health Care and Tricia Neuman, a senior vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and director of the Foundation’s Program on Medicare Policy and its Project on Medicare’s Future, delivers a timely and insightful exploration of Medicare—past, present and future. More than two dozen articles from expert contributors address  a broad range of topics, including personal reflections on the launch of Medicare, a focus on how well the program serves an aging population (and people with disabilities), the politics of Medicare, and, and most importantly, key opportunities and challenges facing Medicare’s future.

To kick off this issue’s release, ASA is hosting a free-of-charge special event on Monday, June 15, in Washington, D.C. (see details and agenda below). The late afternoon event will include a panel briefing and audience engagement session, with an early evening reception to follow.

Sponsored in part by the Robert Wood Foundation President’s Grant Fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation, the Benjamin Rose Institute, and Compassion & Choices, we are confident this special issue of Generations will be a useful, insightful resource for professionals and advocates in aging, as well as all groups, organizations and stakeholders interested in health policy issues and the challenges affecting older adults.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a stimulating discussion about Medicare with thought leaders and experts.

Medicare through the Eyes of Beneficiaries: A Medicare & Medicaid at 50 Symposium

Full Description: 

The National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) and the American Society on Aging (ASA) are collaborating to co-sponsor an event honoring the 50th anniversary of Medicare. Join us (and bring along a colleague or two) at this special afternoon event, featuring authors contributing to ASA’s Summer 2015 landmark issue of Generations journal, “Medicare at 50 Years,” guest-edited by Tricia Neuman,  a senior vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and director of the Foundation’s Program on Medicare Policy and its Project on Medicare’s Future, and John Rother, president/CEO, National Coalition on Health Care. (The issue will be available in June 2015;  www.asaging.org/generations-journal-american-society-aging.)

When: April 23, 2015, 2pm to 5pm

Where: AARP’s Brickfield Conference Center, 601 E Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

What: The 50th anniversary of Medicare is an opportunity to celebrate the critical role this program has played in efficiently and effectively providing health and long-term care for millions of Americans: It is the bedrock of retirement security for older Americans, and its guarantee of coverage allows families and employers to devote resources to other personal and commercial priorities.

Medicare’s 50th anniversary is also an opportunity to look ahead at the challenges facing the program, which includes a growing disconnect between the policy discussions in Washington, D.C., and the current beneficiary (and future) experience—ever increasing out-of-pocket costs and a benefit package that sometimes fails to support current (and future) beneficiaries’ medical and social needs.

How can Medicare evolve for the better over the next 50 years? Such evolution would benefit older Americans, and perhaps to an even greater extent, today’s younger Americans just entering the workforce, as innovations in Medicare often lead the way to changes in private-sector health insurance.

Join experts from a range of leading Medicare policy organizations for a fresh look at the importance of the program. Speakers will take stock of challenges facing Medicare and discuss solutions that make sense from the perspective of beneficiaries. Additionally, experts of public opinion will discuss current data on Americans’ views of Medicare, how policy makers might learn more about current and future beneficiaries’ priorities, and how gathering new information might drive important improvements in the program.

Who’s invited? Health and retirement security policymakers, researchers, advocates, journalists, consumers, grant-makers, healthcare delivery workers, insurers, and other industry stakeholders. To register for this free event:  http://bit.ly/beneficiary_event

This symposium is co-sponsored by the American Society on Aging

Founded in 1954 as the Western Gerontological Society, the American Society on Aging is an association of diverse individuals bound by a common goal: to support the commitment and enhance the knowledge and skills of those who seek to improve the quality of life of older adults and their families. The membership of ASA is multidisciplinary and inclusive of professionals who are concerned with the physical, emotional, social, economic and spiritual aspects of aging. 

 

Throughout 2015, the National Academy of Social Insurance (www.nasi.org) is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid with a series of special activities, including this symposium.. Working with a variety of partners, the Academy is committed to providing the public and the policy community with a platform for educational dialogue around the history and future of these two vital programs. Learn more about the Academy’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, and stay tuned for additional events.

The Academy’s Medicare and Medicaid at 50 and Beyond Celebration Program is made possible thanks to support from Anthem, Inc. and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President’s Grant Fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
