The Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group (CSG) connects, motivates and equips local leaders to build more prosperous regions and advance those living on the economic margins.
We do so by: designing and facilitating action-inducing peer learning among organizations, leaders and policymakers; providing strategic guidance to community leaders and supporters to sharpen their focus and strategy; producing tools, frameworks, analysis and stories to help communities make smart decisions; managing short- and long-term initiatives that catalyze innovation and progress; and building networks to spread good ideas and useful lessons.
CSG's strategic focus areas include:
- Regional Economic Success
- Family Economic Success
- Community Development Philanthropy
- Next Generation Regional and Rural Leadership
