2015 Summit on Inequality & Opportunity

Part of the Institute’s Advancing Opportunity Initiative, the Aspen Institute Summit on Inequality & 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.
