    With catalytic support from a core circle of investors, Ascend at The Aspen Institute was launched with the mission to serve as a hub for breakthrough ideas and proven strategies that move parents, especially women, and their children beyond poverty toward educational success and economic security. Ascend takes a two-generation approach to its work and brings a gender and racial equity lens to analysis. Two-generation  approaches focus on creating opportunities for and addressing needs of both vulnerable parents and children together. Two-generation approaches can be applied to programs, policies, systems, and research. This paper outlines the emerging case for and shares a framework for two-generation approaches. Key economic and demographic trends are driving the need for these approaches. (author abstract)
