Parent Power: Transforming Systems with Families at the Center

Setup

For over a decade, Ascend at the Aspen Institute has lifted up parents’ voices and experiences to inform bold solutions for economic mobility in the United States. How does lived expertise influence the way programs and policies are created? What can we learn from a new wave of philanthropic efforts to invest in communities and their parent leaders? Four dynamic leaders shaping higher education, state systems, criminal justice, and philanthropy share insights on why meeting this moment is important for all families, and what’s at stake if we don’t. Join Drayton Jackson from the Washington State governor’s Poverty Reduction Work Group, Howard Community College President Daria Willis, We Got Us Now CEO Ebony Underwood, and Steelcase Foundation President and CEO Daniel Williams for a discussion facilitated by the Institute’s Anne Mosle.
