America’s Future Summit: Reimagining Opportunity in a Changing Nation
The second annual summit, America’s Future Summit: Reimagining Opportunity in a Changing Nation, will take place in Los Angeles, CA on August 16, 2016. Defining opportunity broadly, the summit will focus on access, inclusion, and leadership in the economic, political and cultural spheres. Similar to the inaugural summit, the audience and speakers will be drawn from experts and thought leaders from the Aspen Institute and beyond who will contribute to a robust discussion and elevate ideas that can be put into action. Los Angeles is a city of the future and the program will also draw upon local talent and industries, as well as cross-cultural cross-discipline collaborations and coalitions that can be elevated as models. Through careful speaker and audience selection we hope to connect grass roots with grass tops, the young and not-so-young, and Latinos with non-Latinos to create linkages across different sectors and industries.
