Please join Ascend at the Aspen Institute for Aspen VisionXChange 2023 on July 31st and August 1st. VisionXChange is centered on the 120 Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows — a remarkable set of diverse, entrepreneurial dreamers and doers from around the country who all share one North Star: transforming our nation’s hearts, minds, policies, and practices to ensure all children and families thrive. Together, they are reinventing systems of care, unlocking capital for economic inclusion, transforming approaches to mental and maternal health, reforming our justice system, and so much more.
Reflecting Ascend at the Aspen Institute’s commitment to embracing lived experience, along with racial, gender, and economic equity in all we do, we will host two afternoons of public programming on July 31st and August 1st. These will feature our Fellows in provocative and inspirational conversations. This convening is free and open to the dreamers and doers of the Roaring Fork Valley to join us in-person or virtually!
Our hope is to dream, disrupt, and delight:
- How do we dream up big ideas, stand up against the naysayers, and get things done, so children and families can prosper?
- How do we disrupt the way things have always been done?
- And how do we delight and find joy as we navigate trying times?
