The American Express Leadership Academy 2.0 at the Aspen Institute: Fellowship for Emerging Social Purpose Leaders develops the next generation of nonprofit leaders and social innovators. This values-based leadership development program strengthens the capacity of fifteen accomplished social purpose leaders annually. Using the Aspen Institute method of text-based dialogue, the Fellowship offers participants a neutral forum in which to reflect on timeless human values, pursue common ground and cultivate a richer understanding of the human condition. They then apply these insights to their work as social purpose leaders.
