2018 Economic Security Summit – The Future of Work & Wealth: A Conversation on Capitalism & Society

Event information

The Economic Security Summit is an annual convening of the nation’s top leaders in industry, academia, philanthropy, government, and nonprofit organizations, to explore challenges facing American workers and families in today’s changing economy. Given the intertwined nature of household financial and employment challenges, leaders can no longer be content to focus on partial solutions or explore ideas in siloed discussions. The Summit brings together leaders from across sectors, disciplines, and political leanings to find common ground, make connections, deepen understanding, and explore solutions to the greatest financial and economic challenges facing American households today.

Building off of two years of sustained focus on the theme of Reconnecting Work and Wealth, the Aspen Institute is once again excited to co-convene a diverse and creative group to address the inextricably linked issues of wages and income, savings and wealth, the changing nature of work, family life, and politics. This year more than ever, the Summit seeks to engage stakeholders to advance labor market and financial solutions that build a more economically stable and resilient workforce while fostering more inclusive growth.

The Economic Security Summit is part of Reconnecting Work and Wealth, a joint initiative of the Economic Opportunities Program and the Financial Security Program  at the Aspen Institute. The programs are grateful to the Prudential Foundation and the Ford Foundation for their support of this important work.

This event is invitation only.
