Fwd: Nov. 12: Public lecture on Personal Retirement Risk Management



Dear Retirees of SFURA,

As you will see below, I have been asked by SFU's Gerontology Department to forward the following announcement.  The occasion of the lecture recalls our colleague Ellen Gee, a prominent scholar of social statistics.  

May I add that the speaker, Leroy Stone, is a distinguished scholar of demographic issues.  "Urban Development in Canada: an introduction to the demographic aspects", 1967, one of his earliest works, was based upon demographic analyses of the national urban population. It was published through the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, now Statistics Canada, where he held senior analytical responsibilities for many years.  At first collaborating with urban geographers in broad perspectives such as this title suggests, he worked increasingly on refined social statistical topics such as those which undoubtedly lie behind the lecture to be delivered at SFU.  His many works appear in both official languages.

Abstract

Systemic changes have been making retirement related risk management more complex for pre-retirees in a number of countries, including Canada. The process has been enhanced by the 2007-2009 financial crisis and the consequent new troubles facing older workers in North American labour markets. Important aspects of these challenges have special significant for women who will live very long lives. There has been a profound, and probably permanent, 'hit' to older-worker confidence about their futures in retirement, which will in due course raise the priority of risk-awareness and risk management in the older population. But some population segments may be well prepared for their new challenges in this area, and others are going to need various amounts of help. The presentation on who is doing well and who needs help will include some details for British Columbians.

About the Speaker

Dr. Leroy Stone is an Adjunct Professor, Department of Demography, University of Montreal and leader of the department's Research Group on Population Behaviours in Retirement Risk Management. He is a past President, Canadian Population Society and member of the Board of Directors of the Population Association of America. His new book "Key Demographics in Retirement Risk Management" is scheduled to be published by Springer early in 2011, and the lecture will be based on segments of the book. He is the author or editor of more than one dozen books dealing with the population of Canada, including "New Frontiers of Research on Retirement."

The lecture will be preceded by the presentation of the Gerontology Research Centre annual Senior Leadership Award which recognizes those performing leadership roles for seniors. 

All are welcome
