Please join the National League of Cities (NLC) for a webinar launching a new initiative to strengthen economic stability for families in cities through a parent-centered approach to employment strategies. The webinar, which will take place on June 6th at 3:00 pm EDT, will share information about how cities can help families succeed by targeting parents in their workforce development efforts.


Keynote Speaker:

Marjorie Sims, Managing Director, Ascend at the Aspen Institute


Ascend at the Aspen Institute is a hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations that move children and their parents toward educational success and economic security. Ascend takes a two-generation approach to their work – focusing on children and their parents together – and bring a gender and racial equity lens to their analysis.


The webinar will introduce a nationwide survey of cities designed to identify city-led strategies and programs to equip parents with the skills to advance in their employment and earn family-sustaining wages.


As a bonus, two respondents who complete the survey will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
