Spend A Long Weekend in Aspen with the Socrates Program

February 27, 2013

Calling emerging leaders in any industry (between ages 28 to 45) to meet in Aspen, CO to explore contemporary, pressing leadership issues in expert-moderated seminars. Registration is now open for the next Aspen Institute Socrates Program, taking place July 5 to 8, 2013. Check out the  five topics—ranging from the economy and the digital world to happiness and food sustainability—that participants can choose to explore and read about the expert moderators who will guide these intimate and substantive conversations.

In addition to enriching values-based conversations, the seminar offers a plentitude of network-building opportunities with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, representatives of government, international, nonprofit and non-govermental organizations, academics and journalists.  

Here’s a rare peek into a recent conversation from the Socrates Program’s just-wrapped winter seminar. In this discussion, Socrates moderators, Princeton University professor and Atlantic columnist Anne-Marie Slaughter and Center for Global Development Senior Fellow Charles Kenny, discuss the work-family life balance and how transforming American societal norms can shape a better outcome for working parents.
