The Aspen Global Leadership Network is a worldwide community of entrepreneurial business, government and civil society leaders committed to values-based leadership. The AGLN is spurring these "fellows" to move "from success to significance" and "from thought to action." Nearly 900 AGLN Fellows from 44 countries are taking on the foremost societal challenges of our time. The Institute is in the early stages of a major campaign to grow and sustain AGLN.
Aspen Institute Seminars
Aspen Institute seminars create a respite from the pace of daily life and provide an opportunity to become, as Institute founder Walter Paepcke aptly put it, "more self-aware, more self-correcting, and hence, more self-fulfilling" through deliberation with peers on timeless ideas and values. Support of seminars can be made through sponsorship of individual scholars and through endowed scholarships.
Socrates Society Seminars
Socrates Society Seminars offer both weekend-long seminars in Aspen and day-long seminars in New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, and San Francisco which provide values-based Socratic exploration to facilitate the exchange of ideas. Support of the Socrates Society Seminars can be made in the form of scholarship, participation in the annual benefit dinner in Aspen, and sponsorships of day-long seminars.
Policy Programs and Initiatives
The Institute has numerous policy programs and initiatives that advance public and private sector knowledge on significant issues confronting contemporary society. Policy programs frame critical topics and convene leaders and experts from relevant fields to reach constructive solutions. Support of policy programs can be made in the form of named program chairs, sponsorship of individual participants, program sponsorships, and other custom opportunities.
In keeping with the Institute's mission to create diverse opportunities for dialogue, the Institute offers a host of public programs to share ideas and engage a broader audience. In singular events and multi-day forums, we offer substantive and rigorous explorations of the significant issues that challenge us, define our times, and will shape our collective future. Events are held throughout the year primarily in Aspen, New York, and Washington, DC. A variety of sponsorship types and levels are available to individuals, foundations, and corporations.
