Resnick Aspen Action Forum 2017

The Resnick Aspen Action Forum is one the Aspen Institute’s greatest platforms for effecting real and measurable change in the world. It is an annual four-day event held in Aspen, CO that encourages entrepreneurial leaders from around the world to commit to putting their ideas for impact into action.

The event offers participants a chance to retreat from the spotlight and refresh their perspectives on their work and lives. These participants – most of whom are part of the Aspen Global Leadership Network – are inspired by the Action Forum’s seminars, workshops, and topical dialogues, to make public “Action Pledges” which detail specific ways they will create positive change in their communities.

The theme of the 2017 Action Forum is The Great Re-Set.

Is it just us or does the world seem to be shifting on its very axis? Surprise decisions by voters across the globe. New views on trade. Unprecedented movements of people. Artificial intelligence displacing workers. The human genome open for tinkering. How do we, as leaders, recalibrate to make sure that these changes have a positive impact on society? And how do we do this while remaining true to our core values? The future of everything is happening now. If ever there was a time for courageous, enlightened leadership, this is it. This is the time for The Great Re-Set.
