THE ASPEN INSTITUTE

The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC.
Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for
discussing and acting on critical issues. The Institute does this primarily in four ways:

ASPEN IMPACT: WHAT IT MEANS

I

n the more than six decades since its founding, the Aspen
Institute has grown and evolved in many directions — but
it has always held fast to its reputation as the place where
policymakers, writers, artists, executives, and members of the
public can come together to explore the values underpinning
society. That reputation, though, is incomplete. From the
beginning, the Institute has been driven by a desire to both
convene and have real­-world impact.

This desire stems from founder Walter Paepcke’s focus on the
“good society” — a concept that still lies at the heart of the Institute.
The “good society” is not some final destination. Instead, it is
an ideal, an aspiration­— a continual striving for improvement,
individually and collectively, driven by both the ideas we explore
and the actions we take.
Impact begins with convenings that seed ideas in the minds of
participants. The back and forth of critical thought, reasoned
response, and careful listening amid diverse, nonpartisan
gatherings makes ideas resonate and reverberate, echo
and grow, until they germinate beyond the confines of the
conference room.
They may take the form of motivations, inspirations, aspirations,
or innovations; but what begins with a roomful of people
exchanging insights and experiences soon touches many,
directly and indirectly. Aspen fellows and grassroots leaders take
on daunting challenges that affect their communities. Reports
guide local and national policymakers, who adopt and adapt
best practices. These specific, measurable effects spread the
reach of the Institute — and its idea of “the good society" — and
lead the way to another season of new gatherings and new ideas
among the Institute’s programs.
The Institute has repeatedly witnessed the power of this cycle.
Perhaps the best recent example was the Communications and
Society program’s Community Dialogue on Healing the Racial
Divide, held in St. Louis, Missouri. Prompted by tensions in the

2

wake of the violent conflicts in the nearby city of Ferguson, the
Institute invited community activists, law enforcement leaders,
educators, and journalists to sit down together for an open,
collaborative, and productive dialogue on the sensitive issue of
race. The ideas that came to the surface were soon transformed
into actions. Participants discussed creating young leadership
and mentoring programs, providing community-relations
training for law enforcement officers, and establishing youth
boards to increase dialogue between police and local youth.
Institute fellows often marvel over how ideas so commonly
pollinate even within small groups. Two New Voices Fellows found
that “one of the most important audiences for our messages
was within the Fellowship itself,” where a group of development
experts from Africa and other parts of the developing world could
“compare notes and come up with new solutions” — solutions
they put to practical use, to help reduce childhood malnutrition.
Joaquin Gallegos, a 24-year-old member of the Jicarilla Apache
Nation who was selected by the Institute’s Center for Native
American Youth as one of five Champions for Change, says that
his advocacy for health care access and environmental issues has
been “enriched and enhanced” through his relationships with
other youth he met in the program, “even though we might not
focus on all of the same issues.”
The contrasting opinions Gallegos now prizes are no coincidence.
A critical element of this cycle is that our gatherings include
people of differing backgrounds, ideologies, cultures, and areas
of expertise. This variety of approaches and views ensures that
we are not creating yet another echo chamber but are instead
challenging our participants to open their minds and listen as
much as they speak. In a time of heightened polarization, the
Institute is an island of stubborn civility — a place where people
of many political stripes and convictions can come together to
listen to each other as they can nowhere else.

The Aspen-Blackstone Middle East & North Africa
Entrepreneurship Program brought small business owners
from the Middle East and North Africa to Silicon Valley for a
week of mentorship that has since led to dramatic growth,
new financing, and expansion into new countries.

A 2014 report by the Education and Society program,
“Leading From the Front of the Classroom: A Roadmap for
Teacher Leadership that Works,” has been used in a series
of US Department of Education programs and distributed
to every teacher within the Kentucky Department of
Education system.

Two Aspen Global Health and Development New Voices
Fellows — one a doctor, the other an agricultural policy
researcher — created two comprehensive initiatives to
combat childhood malnutrition in Africa.

Several municipalities used the Communications and
Society Program’s report, “The Dialogue on Public Libraries,”
to acquire new funding for the design, building, and
expansion of public libraries; libraries and library trustees
have also used it as an engagement and teaching tool.

GHD’s Alliance for Artisan Enterprise partnered with the
Clinton Global Initiative, Kiva, and the US Department of
State to help mostly female artisans create jobs, improve
their families' economic status, and foster development
around the world.

Through Aspen Summer Words, author Alexandra Oliva
cemented her commitment to writing, found an agent, and
sold her debut novel, The Last One.

Inspired by his participation in a Socrates seminar on the
global middle class, Tanzanian Member of Parliament Zitto
Kabwe established a palm oil company that he expects will
help elevate tens of thousands of Tanzanians from poverty
to the middle class.

POLICY PROGRAMS
& PARTNERSHIPS
Advancing Public Policy
Through Dialogue and Action
www.aspeninstitute.org/policy-work

The Aspen Institute policy programs provide
nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus building,
and problem solving on pressing contemporary public
policy issues. They frame critical topics, bring new
evidence to bear on a wide range of issues, propose
innovative ideas, and gather sector leaders and experts
to reach constructive solutions. Each program serves as
an impartial forum, and each is unique in its substance
and approach. Together they share a common mission
and methodology: convening diverse perspectives for
informed dialogue and action.

ASCEND AT THE ASPEN INSTITUTE
www.ascend.aspeninstitute.org

Ascend is the national hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations to move
children and their parents toward educational success and economic security.
We embrace a two-generation approach and a commitment to racial equity and
a gender lens. Two-generation approaches provide opportunities for, and meet
the needs of, children and their parents together. We believe that education,
economic supports, social capital, and health and wellbeing are the core components that create an intergenerational cycle of opportunity. Ascend makes a
difference in the lives of children, parents, and families by elevating and investing in a portfolio of solutions — informed by the voices of families and fueled by
political will and a national network of leaders.
ASPEN FORUM FOR COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS
www.aspencommunitysolutions.org

The mission of this program is to support collaboration that enables communities
to effectively address their most pressing challenges. Its Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund works to demonstrate higher rates of reconnection to education and
employment among opportunity youth and future generations; catalyze adoption
of effective approaches in education and career attainment leading to family-sustaining careers for opportunity youth; and leverage systems and policy changes
at local, state, and national levels to remove systemic barriers. Melody C. Barnes,
former director of the White House Domestic Policy Council and senior advisor to
President Obama, chairs the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions.

ASPEN GLOBAL HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT
www.aspeninstitute.org/ghd

Aspen Global Health and Development promotes solutions to persistent global
health and development problems. It is a force for fresh thinking, unlikely collaborations, and nimble action within the global health and development field.
Current programs tackle areas where new paradigms and innovative partnerships are needed, including womens’ health, a fellowship for young African
and Asian voices in global development discussions, support for the emerging
artisan enterprise sector, and leadership for the last mile in global health. Our
programs mobilize policy to support innovation in low-income communities on
key issues; and they support the advancement of a number of ideas, including
recognition of reproductive health as a key contributor to other development
outcomes globally, adoption of policy innovations to address global health
workforce issues, an alliance that aims to unleash the artisan sector’s economic
potential, a fellowship program for development experts who receive global
media training, and advancement of sustainable and equitable efforts to feed a
world population of more than nine billion.
ASPEN INSTITUTE CITIZENSHIP AND
AMERICAN IDENTITY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/citizenship

In a time of rising inequality and rapidly increasing diversity, the question of what
it means to be American — and how we create a unifying story of “us” — is of prime
consequence. The Aspen Program on Citizenship and American Identity explores
this question through a range of cross-partisan activity, from public forums to
leadership convenings, to seminars. Across our forms of engagement, we focus on
three aspects of citizenship: values, systems, and skills. The values segment focuses
on articulating (and updating) the creedal and cultural content of American civic
identity. The systems segment includes policy proposals and multi-sector collaborations to build social cohesion. The skills segment teaches leaders to construct coalitions and a sense of shared fate across increasingly rigid class and race divides.
This program is directed by Eric Liu, the founder of Citizen University, author, and
former White House speechwriter and policy advisor to President Bill Clinton.

The Franklin Project envisions a future in which a year of full-time national
service — a service year — is a cultural expectation, a common opportunity, and a
civic rite of passage for every young American. Each person can fulfill his or her
national service obligation by joining the military or by completing a full-time
civilian service year through programs such as Teach for America, AmeriCorps,
the Peace Corps, or any eligible nonprofit. A modest living allowance would
be provided for the service year, which would be completed at some point
between the ages of 18–28.
The Institute launched the Franklin Project in 2013, as a program tasked with
creating a voluntary civilian counterpart to military service in the United States.

“We know that every kid’s success is what’s necessary if we are going to be
successful as a country economically. And the disparities that affect Latino
and African American students are incompatible with the kind of economic
future we need to build."

future of America at the Aspen Institute Latinos and Society Inaugural Summit. (photo by Laurence Genon)

Born from General Stanley McChrystal’s call at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival to
engage more Americans in serving their communities and country, the initiative
has engaged leaders in military, business, government, nonprofit, faith, academic, community-building, and other sectors to support large-scale civilian service.
Its formation is vital at a time of national division, when the entrepreneurial
energy of citizens must be harnessed to help solve public problems and bring
people of different perspectives together. General McChrystal chairs the project, and John Bridgeland of Civic Enterprises and Alan Khazei of City Year and
Be the Change, Inc. serve as co-chairs responsible for designing and managing
the initiative. Former US Sen. Harris Wofford serves as senior advisor.
ASPEN INSTITUTE LATINOS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/latinos-society

The Latinos and Society Program is focused on increasing the understanding of,
and improving outcomes for, the growing US Latino population. The Latinos and
Society program will convene meaningful dialogues among cross-sections of society with a focus on influencing positive outcomes, infusing the work of the Aspen
Institute with Latino voices and ideas, and developing Latino leadership capacity.
As the largest minority group in the US (projected to reach 26 percent of the
population by 2050) and as a relatively young and rapidly growing population,
Latinos will be entering our schools, health systems, and labor force at unprecedented rates. Their success or failure will directly impact the direction of the
country. Their participation and representation in all sectors of society and
leadership is critical to our democracy. Our work will emphasize a particular
focus on educational achievement, economic advancement, and civic participation. We will also launch a Latino Leadership Initiative focused on developing
the next generation of entrepreneurial, civic-minded Latino leaders equipped
to positively impact their communities by undertaking leadership projects and
contributing to America’s future.
ASPEN NETWORK OF DEVELOPMENT ENTREPRENEURS
www.aspeninstitute.org/ande

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs is a global network of organizations that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets. ANDE members
provide critical financial, educational, and business support services to small

and growing businesses based on the conviction that SGBs will create jobs,
stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and social
benefits. Ultimately, we believe that SGBs can help lift countries out of poverty.
Members of ANDE include both for- and non-profit investment funds, capacity
development providers, research and academic institutions, development finance
institutions and corporations from around the world. Launched with 34 members
in 2009, ANDE now comprises over 200 members who collectively operate in
more than 150 countries. ANDE has regional chapters in Brazil, Central America,
Mexico, East Africa, East and Southeast Asia, India, South Africa, and West Africa.
ASPEN PLANNING AND EVALUATION PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/apep

APEP helps clients plan and evaluate efforts to shape public policy and promote changes in attitudes and behavior. Program staff and consultants work
internally with other Institute programs as well as with foundations and nongovernmental organizations based in the US, Africa, and Europe to assess their
advocacy and social change efforts. APEP’s recent evaluation clients address issues as diverse as reducing the incidence of child marriage worldwide, improving the practices of microfinance providers, empowering women and girls in
Kenya, and promoting a new vision for American public libraries. The program
also leads the Institute’s internal program review process.
ASPEN STRATEGY GROUP
www.aspeninstitute.org/asg

How can America’s national security establishment better adapt to nascent threats
and challenges? As current global trends defy traditional notions of international relations, what common problems do nations face in the 21st century?
This program focuses on transnational issues that blend foreign and domestic
subjects. Founded in 1984 with a concentration on strategic relations, arms
control issues, and the US-Soviet relationship, its roots as an annual conference
for researchers associated with arms control projects at universities and think
tanks date back to the 1970s. As the group evolved, it also included legislators,
government officials, business and industry representatives, and journalists. The
current program has moved beyond its Cold War origins and today includes
three generations of policymakers representing a range of perspectives.

The approach, however, has remained constant: to use a bipartisan lens to
identify the most contentious foreign policy and national security concerns
facing our nation and to assess America’s evolving interests. Recent workshops,
briefings, and reports have covered the crisis with Russia, the future of American defense, Arab revolutions and American policy, cyber security, American
interests in South Asia, the national security implications of climate change, and
the challenge of nuclear proliferation. The Aspen Ministers Forum and Track II
dialogues with Brazil, China, and India also convene under the auspices of the
Aspen Strategy Group.

of tribal governments and advocates, difficult conditions — including high rates of
unemployment, poverty, alcohol and substance abuse, crime, and health disparities — persist in many tribal communities. CNAY brings together Native youth, tribal
leaders, and organizations in the public and private sector through roundtables,
summits, and events held throughout Indian Country; houses a youth leadership
program inspired by a White House initiative called Champions for Change; and
most recently, partnered with the White House to launch a network aimed at removing barriers between Native youth and their opportunities to succeed.
COLLEGE EXCELLENCE PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/college-excellence

Established in 1998 and building on 60 years of Institute programming, the
Aspen Institute Business and Society Program works to align business with the
long-term health of society by helping established and emerging business
leaders put values at the heart of practice. Through dialogue, research, and
outreach, BSP creates opportunities for executives and educators to explore
new routes to business sustainability and values-based leadership. Its Corporate
Values Strategy Group supports business executives in developing long-term
thinking in business, investing through change in corporate practice and public
policy, and exploration of fundamental questions on business purpose. The program’s First Movers Fellowship is for exceptional business innovators who are
integrating profitability and social value in their companies. Its Leaders Forum
engages senior executives who are pushing the boundaries of what it means
to be a socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable company. The
program is also home to several signature programs for vanguard business educators, including CasePlace.org, Faculty Pioneers, and an undergraduate network linking business and liberal arts. These programs highlight cutting-edge
teaching and research on social and environmental stewardship.

Improving college student outcomes is a vital national priority. Only half of all college students graduate, college access and success remain strongly correlated to
race and income, and evidence suggests that the learning that takes place in college is too often limited and not well aligned with what students need to succeed.
Over the past 50 years, increased college access has benefited millions of Americans, but now the nation must get more students through college with the skills
and abilities needed for success after graduating. The goal of this program is to
identify and accelerate the replication of practices and policies that improve and
make more equitable student success in learning, completion, and post-graduation employment. Several of the program’s initiatives relate to community
colleges, including the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, which
awards one million dollars biennially to the nation’s best community colleges and
works to replicate exceptional college outcomes nationwide. A second community college project works to align the hiring and professional development of community college presidents with the goals of improving student success. Extending
the program’s reach into the four-year sector, three newer projects are addressing
community college to university transfer, the future of the college presidency, and
socioeconomic diversity at top American colleges and universities.

CENTER FOR NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH
www.cnay.org

COMMUNICATIONS AND SOCIETY PROGRAM

This program serves as a venue for global leaders and experts to exchange
insights on the societal impact of advances in digital technology and network
communications. It also creates a multidisciplinary space in the communications

policymaking world where veteran and emerging decision-makers can explore
new concepts and develop policy networks. The program convenes approximately 10 leadership roundtables each year on diverse subjects such as e-commerce, internet governance, institutional innovation, spectrum policy, race and
media, and diplomacy and technology. The program is also conducting ongoing projects on the future of public libraries and on connected learning. Leaders
from across disciplines and perspectives engage in moderated discussions that
culminate in specific conclusions and recommendations. Conference reports
are distributed to key policymakers and opinion leaders around the world and
are available to the public online.
COMMUNITY STRATEGIES GROUP
www.aspeninstitute.org/csg

This group helps leaders in rural, urban, and suburban communities act together to create more vibrant regions that advance and sustain prosperity and
wellbeing for local people, places, and firms, including those on the economic
margins. CSG helps community leaders on the ground connect with and motivate each other. It also equips them with the best ideas, tools, and strategies
to improve community and economic results. The group’s hallmark approach
is tailored, peer-to-peer exchanges in which community-based leaders create
immediate back-home action plans. CSG also brings together disconnected
leaders in specific geographic regions to collaborate and find common aims,
and it connects community innovators with regional and national experts and
funders. It distills community lessons into action guides, good-practice profiles,
virtual peer-learning exchanges, and online resources. CSG builds and manages three networks of community-based practitioners and regional leaders from
across the country, one focused on advancing family economic success, one
on community development philanthropy, and another on the WealthWorks
approach to regional economic development.
CONGRESSIONAL PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/congressional

This is a nonpartisan, public policy education and civility-building program for
members of the US Congress in which more than 30 percent of the current
Congress has participated. At a time of Congressional gridlock and extreme
partisanship, the program offers Republican and Democratic legislators the

opportunity to learn from internationally recognized academics and experts and
to explore policy alternatives. It assists legislators in developing a deeper understanding of public policy options and the personal relationships necessary to
help Congress meaningfully address our nation’s problems. Although the program does not endorse specific legislation, for more than three decades it has
provided a forum for discussion of policy issues that has often sown the seeds
for significant policy initiatives. Current subjects include international economic
and security issues; extremism; energy security; policy challenges in Africa; and
US policy with regard to Russia, NATO, Asia, and the Middle East. The program
is funded solely by foundations, and it annually sponsors two dozen breakfast
meetings and four conferences for members of Congress. No lobbyists, congressional staff, or outside observers are permitted, and the House and Senate
ethics committees review all conference agendas. The program also has a
parallel educational effort as a resource for key congressional staff to analyze the
most effective policies to deliver foreign development assistance.
ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/eop

This program promotes strategies to help low-income Americans succeed
in today’s dynamic economy. Its areas of focus include labor market strategies
that enable low-income people to successfully engage and thrive in our rapidly
changing economy, entrepreneurship and small or microenterprise development,
and innovations that allow low-income Americans to build assets and achieve
a measure of economic security. The program works closely with national and
local leaders focused on building opportunity, including those from community
colleges, community-based nonprofits, businesses, and economic development
organizations, as well as elected officials, policy staff, and other stakeholders. It
evaluates innovative and promising strategies, provides peer learning and leadership development opportunities for local leaders, develops practical tools that
help organizations implement promising strategies, and promotes public conversation around the issues facing low-income Americans and ideas for promoting
shared prosperity. The program includes three distinct initiatives: the Microenterprise Fund for Innovation, Effectiveness, Learning, and Dissemination (FIELD); the
Workforce Strategies Initiative; and Skills for America’s Future.

EDUCATION AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/education

The program works to improve public education by inspiring, informing, and
influencing education leaders across policy and practice, with an emphasis on
achieving equity for traditionally underserved students. The program facilitates important conversations that are informed by research, experience, and
divergent perspectives. The program also convenes workshops and roundtable
discussions for federal, state, and local policymakers and their staffs; education
leaders at all levels, from superintendents to teachers; and researchers to develop concrete solutions to complex problems. The program produces reports
that inform national policy debates and tools and resources that deepen and
accelerate the work of our partner states and districts.
ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/ee

This program provides a neutral forum for constructive civil society dialogue on
complex energy and environmental policy issues, thereby deepening knowledge, broadening perspectives, and enhancing the capacity of leaders to solve
problems. The program’s core competency is convening strategic groups of
experts from government, business, academia, and nonprofit organizations in
dialogue structured and moderated for discussion, exploration, and consensus
building. The program annually convenes the Forum on Global Energy, Economy, and Security, which focuses on global oil and gas; the Energy Policy Forum,
which focuses on domestic electricity; the Clean Energy Forum, which focuses
on innovation; and, more recently, the Aspen-Nicholas Water Forum and the
Modern Shale Gas Production Forum. The program’s efforts to advance collective knowledge about critical environmental problems include policy-changing

GLOBAL ALLIANCES PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/gap

This program was established in response to the increasing need for and reliance on public-private alliances to take on the challenges that the public sector
is unequipped to tackle on its own. As a platform for cross-sector collaboration, the Global Alliances Program has partnered with the Department of State
to encourage US cooperation and investment in business and communities
across the globe. These Partnership Opportunity Delegations are deployed in
response to local communities’ priorities and result in business-to-business and
people-to-people partnerships. To date, PODs have gone to Colombia, Myanmar, and Tanzania; and PODs to Cuba, Myanmar, Bhutan, and Madagascar are
planned. GAP has also partnered with the Department of Defense to foster a
culture of innovation and learning within the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
The New Ideas @ OSD series brings experts from outside the national security
field to the Pentagon to consult with Defense leadership on how to shape policy
in ways that are innovative, adaptive, and effective in a changing and complex
global security environment. By convening and facilitating partnerships between the US public and private sectors, as well as their international counterparts, GAP strives to build equitable, sustainable relationships between communities and to foster greater development and prosperity.
HEALTH, MEDICINE, AND SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/health

This program creates opportunities for government, industry, academic, advocacy, and industry leaders to explore critical issues in health, health care, medical science, and health policy in the US. The Health, Medicine, and Society Program facilitates knowledge exchanges and advances strategic thinking among
these decision makers through nonpartisan, multi-disciplinary public policy
programs and dialogue, including roundtables, briefings, conferences, and
Internet forums. These convenings encourage collaborative networks among
leading policymakers, health professionals, scientists, and advocates in a broad
range of fields, while helping to inform and advance policies to improve the
health of individuals, families, communities, the nation, and the world. In 2014,
in collaboration with the Global Health and Development Program, HMS designed and hosted the inaugural Spotlight Health event, now the lead-in session
to the annual Aspen Ideas Festival. HMS also contributed to projects sponsored
by other policy programs (including Ascend and Energy and Environment) by
helping to bring the health lens to their work. In addition, efforts continued and
progress was made in establishing HMS initiatives in health policy and biomedical innovation, and new projects in bioethics and gun violence received initial
funding support.

HOMELAND SECURITY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/security

Years have passed since 9/11, yet holes remain in America’s defenses against
terrorism, heightening the risk of another attack. This program identifies gaps
in the nation’s defenses against terrorism and recommends ways to close them.
Through reports, roundtable discussions, Congressional testimony, and forums,
it strives to convince policymakers, stakeholders, and the public at large to
reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism.
INITIATIVE ON FINANCIAL SECURITY
www.aspeninstitute.org/ifs

It is widely known that saving sparks entrepreneurship, fuels growth in capital
markets, builds the middle class, and creates jobs for the future. But in an era
of increasing income volatility and inequality, many families struggle to build a
financial cushion, let alone a nest egg. The Aspen Initiative on Financial Security promotes an in-depth exploration of the most critical financial challenges
facing America's families. Through its use of strategic convenings, dialogues,
briefings, and publications, the program advances workable solutions that help
hard working Americans manage economic shocks, become more financially resilient, and get on track to pursue long term savings and investment goals. The
Initiative moves stakeholder dialogue beyond diagnosis, to bring to the national
forefront a solutions-focused discussion of how the rapidly evolving financial
system and public policies can work together to improve the financial security
and financial wellbeing of all Americans.
JUSTICE & SOCIETY PROGRAM
www.aspeninstitute.org/justice

For four decades, the Justice & Society Program has convened individuals from
diverse backgrounds to discuss the meaning of justice and how a just society
ought to balance fundamental rights with the exigencies of public policy in
order to meet contemporary social challenges and strengthen the rule of law.
Through our public programming component — which includes the Susman
Conversation on the Constitution and the Courts at Aspen, periodic roundtables
at the Institute’s Washington office, and presentations by leading jurists — we
bring to the table public officials, established and emerging opinion leaders,

and grassroots organizers to share their perspectives in a neutral and balanced
forum. Recent and ongoing multi-year projects focus on law and policy issues,
including religious free exercise (Inclusive America Project, 2012–2015), state
public health policy (Excellence in State Public Health Law Program, 2013–2014
and 2015–2016), and judicial independence in the US and globally (ongoing).
The annual Justice and Society Seminar, held in Aspen and co-founded by the
late US Supreme Court Associate Justice Harry A. Blackmun, continues to be led
by preeminent judges and law professors. The Justice Circle, an exclusive group
of Justice & Society Program supporters co-chaired by Tristan Duncan and
Steve Susman, was launched in January 2014. Through the Circle, friends of JSP
maintain an ongoing connection to our work and enjoy special events.
MANUFACTURING AND SOCIETY IN THE 21ST CENTURY
www.aspeninstitute.org/mfg

The US manufacturing sector has long been a source of good jobs and increases in the standard of living. In recent decades the relative decline of the sector
has led to questions about its future viability. This program brings business,
government, and opinion leaders together to discuss and analyze many of the
important problems and opportunities affecting the future of manufacturing in
an increasingly globalized economy. Policy discussions are convened in Washington, DC, and in Italy in collaboration with Aspen Italia; and a CEO seminar is

THE ASPEN SEMINAR
www.aspeninstitute.org/aspenseminar

For more than 60 years, this premier roundtable has challenged leaders
in every field to think more critically and deeply. The seminar is a unique
opportunity to step away from the demands of the present and reflect with
other leaders in moderated, text-based Socratic dialogue on the concept of
a good and just society: What is it, how does it become a reality, and what
is our role in making it happen? The settings in Aspen, Colorado, and on
Maryland’s Eastern Shore are ideal for rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit
of participants who emerge personally renewed and professionally refocused.

This program has provided a forum for emerging young leaders from various
professions to explore contemporary issues through expert-moderated dialogue
for nearly 20 years. It also provides the opportunity for participants to enter
a diverse professional network, as well as the broader range of the Institute’s
programs. Its weekend-long seminars in Aspen, Colorado, and abroad, as well

River campus near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the seminars focus on

fighting rare genetic diseases, to providing healthy meals to school children,
to battling corruption, Fellows bring their entrepreneurial spirit to bear on a
variety of critical issues.
Today, the Aspen Global Leadership Network numbers more than 2,000
Fellows in 49 countries and continues to grow. The Network connects Fellows
through forums like the online Fellow Exchange, as well as regular events like
the Aspen Action Forum, an annual gathering that connects Aspen Global
Leadership Network Fellows and other leaders from Aspen Institute programs
and partners, spurring them to move from thought to action.

"We have participated in energy and
environmental conferences at the
Aspen Institute for over 25 years.
In that time we observed many
conversations that led to important, nuanced insights, molding the
opinions of the participants, many
of whom then worked to shape US
policy on these critical issues for our
future. It is in these open-minded
forums where the Aspen Institute’s
belief that all knowledge starts with
a conversation comes true."

“I have found that helping entrepreneurs scale their businesses
is the key route to value creation,
both in terms of financial return
and social values. I created the
Braddock Scholars Program to
match our most promising Global
Leadership Fellows with mentors
from the Institute's vast network
of accomplished leaders.”

“We are truly delighted to
underwrite the inaugural Society
of Fellows Discussion Receptions
in New York City. Expanding the
SOF footprint there will encourage
robust discussions around issues
of paramount importance to New
York City and the nation while
exposing the SOF to a wider
audience of interested individuals.”

"The Aspen Institute's topics and

SOF Discussion Receptions in
New York City, we look forward
to enjoying these engaging
conversations more regularly, rather
than just seasonally.
