Brightest Minds: Dr. Isabel Sawhill on Creating a New Ethic of Responsible Parenthood

9:30am to 11:30am
Location Title: 
PNC
More than 40 percent of new mothers are unmarried. Sixty percent of these births are unplanned, as women, in the words of Dr. Isabel Sawhill, “drift” into motherhood. Since the 1970s, this rise in unwed and unplanned motherhood has resulted in an increase in child poverty. Join us as Dr. Sawhill explores these societal trends and their impact on child poverty and wellness, and explains how the social sector can effectively support efforts for change.

Join leaders from across the Greater Washington region to learn about CWBI, the impact of this business model on individuals and communities, and the vision for CWBI into the future.
