United Way Fighting Generational Poverty
United Way of Greater Cincinnati was recently named a member of the Aspen Institute Ascend Network, a group of leading organizations using two-generation approaches to disrupt poverty and create economic mobility for families. UWGC will develop a two-generational strategy to increase the number of low-income women working in advanced manufacturing careers and involve their children in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning. Joining us to discuss this two-generational strategy to fight poverty is Kathie Maynard, chair of the Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative, Janice Urbanik, executive director of Partners for a Competitive Workforce, and Melissa Hall Sommer, director of Workforce Development at Brighton Center.
