Ascend at the Aspen Institute and the ECMC Foundation are celebrating the release of a new documentary titled, “A Single Mom’s Story” with a panel and Q&A featuring Ascend PSP Parent Advisors.
ECMC will give background on the documentary. Ascend will share data on single mothers who are pursuing a postsecondary degree or workforce credential. This will be followed by a panel discussion featuring three single mothers (two Ascend Parent Advisors and one mother from the film) to share their unique experiences.
Summary of the documentary:
See how single mothers are thriving. Follow along as Gabby, Kiera, and Maliaq—three single moms eager to explore how to find meaningful careers and navigate post-secondary success—travel across the country to talk with other single mothers who’ve found fulfilling work as microbiologists, professors, authors, artists, and more. Fueled by ECMC Foundation, “A Single Mom’s Story” shows how single moms can and should be empowered to seek out work that means something to them and their communities. Their stories and those of the inspiring people they meet are proof single mothers can accomplish anything they set their minds to.
