The aging services industry needs good leaders in order to keep pace with America’s shifting demographics. ASA’s key goal is to support and enhance the knowledge and skills of people who work to improve the quality of life of older adults and their families, and we fulfill this goal by developing and mentoring members’ leadership skills and growth. Our fast-track Leadership Academy supports those already in a rewarding career, but who are seeking leadership positions. And the two-decades old New Ventures in Leadership program supports leaders of color. The leadership landing page is an especially useful resource that gives information about those dynamic programs, while featuring stories and webinar content on careers in aging, re-careering in other directions, mentoring and its many benefits, staff development, and more.

While we know that engaging allies to assist can go a long way towards advancing these goals, more often than not we struggle to find these allusive supporters so ready to get involved and make a difference.

The Challenge of Intersectionality

posted 02.28.2018

By Toni Calasanti and Sadie Giles

In her exploration of social justice, Nancy Fraser (2008) argues that “participatory parity” is critical, “overcoming injustice means dismantling institutionalized obstacles that prevent some people from participating on a par with others, as full partners in social interaction” (Fraser, 2008).
