Aspen FSP takes a broadly informed approach to research. One of our key principles is that empirical evidence and personal experience both provide valuable and essential information. In order to operationalize this principle, Aspen FSP leads a set of person-centered research initiatives to generate actionable insights for improving the financial security of families in the U.S.
These insights are built through cross-sector partnerships that illuminate the needs and experiences of financially insecure workers, consumers, and households through data-driven and qualitative research. In addition, FSP convenes the Community Advisory Group, composed of leaders from around the country to provide deep, ongoing feedback and direction driven by their experience of financial insecurity. The lessons drawn from these efforts:
- Serve as a foundation to refine the way we, and other leaders in the financial security field, think about and prioritize the financial challenges facing people in the U.S. today and in the future; and
- Inform the development of policy and market solutions grounded in the perspective of people directly or the organizations (public, private, or nonprofit) that serve them.
Aspen FSP’s work on person-centered insights is made possible through our funders. Visit our funders page to learn more.
