Gloria Perez joined 200 experts this week at the Ascend at the Aspen Institute’s 2015 Think XChange. This premier national gathering convened leaders with bold ideas for creating an intergenerational cycle of opportunity for low-income American families. Leaders from across sectors gathered to identify opportunities and solutions for moving children and their parents together toward stability and success.
Participants included leading nonprofit innovators from nearly 40 states and the District of Columbia; journalists from outlets; established scholars from the nation’s top universities; philanthropists from some of the world’s largest foundations; and policymakers representing the most forward-thinking states in the union.
Gloria shared Jeremiah’s experience in building peer support into programming. She will be joined by Brian Pellinen of Endicott College, Jeremiah’s partner in Boston, and Monica Barczak of CAP Tulsa. They will jointly discuss the importance of social capital in building resilience in families.
Several of the plenary sessions at the Think XChange were live streamed. More info.
