The Impact of Disparities on Families, Communities and the Nation: A Conversation on Policy Solutions

A Members-Only Audio Conference Series of the National Academy of Social Insurance on November 18, 2015

A members-only opportunity to be briefed on -- and provide input to -- a major new theme of the Academy’s work: how disparities in income, wealth and opportunity are impacting people’s lives and society as a whole, and how social insurance programs, broadly conceived, can best respond. This audio conference will feature a talk show-style conversation between the co-chairs of the 2016 annual policy research conference, David Colby, Kilolo Kijakazi, and Maya MacGuineas and will offer members the chance to engage with the co-chairs and each other on this topic.

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 2:00pm Eastern / 1:00pm Central / 12:00pm Mountain / 11:00am Pacific
