2015 Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows

Meet the 2015-2016 class of Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows. These extraordinary leaders have shown the power of guaranteed basic income in families’ lives; transformed college campuses to welcome student parents and create a college going culture in their communities; shifted the culture of state human services and early childhood systems to truly put families and equity first; and used brain science to understand the strengths of families in the sensitive early months of life.
