About Aspen Institute

Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues. The Aspen Institute does this primarily in four ways: seminars, which help participants reflect on what they think makes a good society, thereby deepening knowledge, broadening perspectives and enhancing their capacity to solve the problems leaders face; young-leader fellowships around the globe, which bring a selected class of leaders together for an intense multi-year program and commitment; policy programs, which serve as nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus building, and problem solving on a wide variety of issues; public conferences and events, which provide a commons for people to share ideas.
