2022 Ascend Impact & Inspiration Report

Anne Mosle | February 14, 2023 | Publication

My heart is filled with love and gratitude for the courageous community of leaders our Ascend at the Aspen Institute team works with everyday.  And I am simply delighted to share our Ascend at the Aspen Institute Impact & Inspiration Report. In this magazine-style 2022 Impact & Inspiration Report, you will meet just a few of those inspiring leaders and learn about some innovative solutions that give us great hope that we can build a new future. 

In 2022, Ascend marked a decade of building a community of game changers who are listening to, learning from, and leading with families with low incomes. Together, we have ignited a movement that now reaches 12 million families across rural, urban, suburban, and Tribal communities. We enter 2023 stronger and more determined than ever to make child, parent, and family well-being one of the United States’ top priorities and greatest achievements. 

The future is bright, and together we can go as far as our imagination takes us.

Always Ascending, Anne
