The Aspen Summit on Inequality and Opportunity

*AT CAPACITY*

Part of the Institute’s Advancing Opportunity Initiative, the Aspen Institute Summit on Inequality and Opportunity is a one-day gathering dedicated to nonpartisan dialogue about the widening opportunity gap in the US. We will convene 200+ of our nation’s most important policy makers, thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and practitioners from all over the country for a day of ideas, problem solving, and values-based exchange. By highlighting the newest research, best practices, and emerging innovations in the fight against poverty, this Aspen Institute Summit will be a call to action in the run-up to the 2016 Election.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. If you wish to attend this event, please contact Carolyn Zelikow (202-736-3527 or carolyn.zelikow@aspeninstitute.org), including your first and last name, email, and title.
