Convening on Two-Generation State and Local Policies
On July 23 – 24, 2012, in Austin, Texas, Ascend co-hosted the third in its series on Two-Generation Strategies, "Convening on Two-Generation State and Local Policies," which followed the October 2011 roundtable, “Two-Generation Strategies in Education.” Developed in partnership with the Ray Marshall Center for Human Resources at The LBJ School of Public Affairs (University of Texas at Austin) and the Foundation for Child Development, the convening was an opportunity for policy experts, researchers, program leaders, and philanthropy representatives from around the country to engage in an in-depth dialogue on two-generation strategies applicable to local and state policies. Those gathered at the convening — representing state agencies, local programs, foundations, and national institutions from Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oklahoma, California, Maryland, and Texas — discussed opportunities and challenges for integrating two-generation strategies across local and state policies and systems and advancing a research agenda around this emerging concept.
