The Aspen Institute Summit on Inequality & Opportunity, to be held on March 16, 2017, is a one-day gathering in Washington, DC dedicated to nonpartisan dialogue about the widening opportunity gap in the United States. We will convene 400+ policymakers, thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and practitioners from all over the country for a day of ideas, exchange, and inspiration.

The inaugural Summit in 2015 featured a powerful lineup of presenters including Vice President Joe Biden, the Ford Foundation’s Darren Walker, the American Enterprise Institute’s Arthur Brooks, the Center for Equitable Growth’s Heather Boushey, Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen, poet Clint Smith, and local high school students, among others.

The 2017 Summit, to be held at the outset of the next Administration, will lay the groundwork for a national high-level conversation about the systemic nature of the problems undermining household financial security and economic mobility.
