It’s because of this kind of work that KnowledgeWorks is proud to support StrivePartnership. It’s not only an investment in the Cincinnati community, but in the people who will ensure our future success: children.
As part of this work, Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky has been designated as a Talent Hub by Lumina Foundation for meeting rigorous standards for creating environments that attract, retain and cultivate talent, particularly among today’s students, many of whom are people of color, the first in their families to go to college and from low-income households. We are one is one of 17 communities nationwide to receive this designation.
“The women we will be working with bring talent and aspirations that we are failing to fully utilize in our region’s economy,” said Byron White, executive director of StrivePartnership. “Lumina Foundation’s investment in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky as a Talent Hub will serve as the catalyst for stronger alignment of local organizations already assisting single mothers, and provide an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty for these families.”
Judy Peppler is President and Chief Executive Officer of KnowledgeWorks, leading the social enterprise that is working across the United States to improve the numbers of students who graduate ready for college or career.
