In an effort to uplift and help address the challenges encountered by pregnant/parenting students, California Competes, Blue Shield of California Foundation, The Michelson 20MM Foundation, Tipping Point Community, Ascend at the Aspen Institute, and The Education Trust—West are hosting Forging Equitable Futures for Student Parents in California: A Virtual Statewide Summit on July 25-26 to support an emerging movement of student parents, educational leaders, and advocates focused on driving systems change for the student parent population.

  • Inspire collaboration across sectors to identify innovations and solutions to better support and advocate for student parents and their families
  • Explore policy opportunities to enhance supports for student parents and their families
  • Articulate a platform for network building, collaboration, and advocacy across higher education, social services, and early childhood education systems
  • Elevate the voices of parenting students to propel student-centered change
