2014 Aspen ThinkXChange: The Power of Networks
National Forum on Two-Generation Solutions
October 6 – 9, 2014, Aspen, Colorado
We are especially excited that this year’s Aspen ThinkXChange was the first comprehensive in-person convening of the Aspen Institute Ascend Network. The theme of the 2014 ThinkXChange was the power of networks to create lasting, two-generation change in the lives of American families. The Ascend Network members represent 24 states and the District of Columbia and include local, state, and national pioneers. Along with the Ascend Fellows, anchor members of the Network, they serve our country’s most vulnerable families. With the same strong commitment to racial equity and a gender lens that is a hallmark of Ascend’s work, the Aspen ThinkXChange is a powerful platform for two-generation leaders to present big ideas, share data and research, understand best and next practices and policies, and identify evidence-based opportunities for children and their parents.
