Moving the Needle: Where (and How!) Single Moms Are Thriving
11/24/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and Roadtrip Nation next week for an event exploring opportunities to move the needle for single mothers’ success.
Building off of IWPR’s groundbreaking research on the economic returns to single mothers’ college attainment, this event is taking place during a weeklong celebration of Roadtrip Nation’s release of “A Single Mom’s Story,” a documentary that follows the stories of Gabby, Kiera, and Maliaq, three single mothers who overcome barriers in education to find fulfilling careers, produced with the support of ECMC Foundation. IWPR’s impressive lineup of speakers will highlight how institutions, states, and national policymakers can take action to promote equity and success for single mother college students.
