The Milken Institute Global Conference convenes the best minds in the world to tackle its most urgent challenges and to help realize its most exciting opportunities. It is a unique experience in which individuals with the capital, power, and influence to change the world connect with those whose expertise and creativity are reinventing health, finance, technology, philanthropy, industry, and media. The 24th annual Global Conference will center on the theme, “Charting a New Course.” In recent months, the impact of social crisis, economic dislocation, and global pandemic has called us to reflect on how we live, what we believe, and what matters most

This talk explores racial disparities in mortality during U.S. pandemics, using the 1918 and COVID-19 pandemics to develop general frameworks for understanding inequality in pandemic experiences—and what they reveal about inequality during ordinary, non-pandemic times. The first part of the talk considers racial disparities during the most devastating respiratory pandemic of the 20thcentury, the 1918 flu; shows that those disparities were surprisingly small; and develops new hypotheses, grounded in social immunology, to account for this anomaly. The second part of the talk pivots from 1918 to 2020-21. During the 1918 pandemic, U.S. white mortality was still lower than U.S. Black mortality had been nearly every year. Today, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the same pattern holds: white mortality during the COVID pandemic has likely still been lower than Black mortality has ever been. Using pandemic mortality as a measuring stick for racial disparities offers a new perspective on the measures we do —and do not —embrace in order to combat racial inequality. I use demographic mortality models to make a new, demographically based case for reparations for racism.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made clear that factors such as age and pre-existing conditions intersect with socioeconomic and demographic characteristics—such as race-ethnicity, gender, and income—to influence both the onset and severity of the disease, as well as its trajectory. Not only has the pandemic laid bare stark differences in health and mortality for different groups of people, but also dramatic inequalities in outcomes such as education, work, family dynamics, and mental health. In this briefing, population scientists will share research findings on the disparate impacts of COVID and what additional research and data are needed to understand and address its far-reaching effects.

Restricting their ability to establish connections with majority groups  or to access novel information. In this talk, I show how this phenomenon  is manifested in a variety of online and face-to-face social networks  and what societal consequences it has on the visibility and ranking of  minorities. I propose a network model with tunable homophily and group  sizes and demonstrate how the ranking of nodes is affected by homophilic  behavior. I will discuss the implications of this research on algorithms  and perception biases.
