2018 Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows

Meet the 2018-2019 class of Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows, who are on the front lines of new solutions to address inequality for children and their parents. They apply behavioral science and trauma-informed research to systems serving families; lead systemic shifts in state human services and early education; change the narrative around families affected by the justice system; target angel investments to bridge racial inequities; redefine approaches to mental health; and build stronger pathways from the early years to adulthood for Native American children and youth.
