Socrates Summer Seminars

The Aspen Institute’s Socrates Society  is a forum in which emerging leaders from across sectors of society meet to explore contemporary issues through moderated dialogue. Socrates also provides the opportunity for participants to enter into a diverse professional network, and into the broader range of the Aspen Institute’s programs. At the core of Socrates is a remarkable group of emerging and recognized leaders including entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, representatives of government, international, nonprofit and non-governmental organizations, academics and journalists. 

Join Socrates this summer  for one of the  five expert-moderated seminars June 26-29 in Aspen, CO, and for the  annual Socrates Society Benefit Dinner on Sunday, June 28th, featuring  New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning-author Thomas L. Friedman. More information.
