In a new article from ASA RISE, Rigo J. Saborio, MSG, VP of Programs, Equity and Community Impact at The SCAN Foundation, talks about his experiences as a minority professional navigating the field of gerontology, the necessity of diversifying the aging sector and the numerous mentors and allies required for success.

The John A. Hartford Foundation is collaborating with the American Society on Aging (ASA) to advance equity in aging by supporting ASA RISE, a 20-week social justice and leadership program for rising leaders of color in aging, and via the development and dissemination of equity-related, partnership-based thought leadership through ASA’s Generations platform. This article is part of that series.
