2012 Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows

Meet the 2012-2013 class of Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows, who have been at the vanguard of the two-generation movement in the US. They have helped shift our understanding of the importance of social capital and financial assets early in families’ lives, think more broadly about the intersections of early education and health; and confirmed the power of investing in community college and human services systems.

The Ascend Fellow alumni below demonstrate a consistent commitment to our shared North Star of family prosperity and well-being and the Aspen Institute’s Community Agreement.
