Socrates Program

The Aspen Institute Socrates Program provides a forum for emerging leaders from various professions to convene and explore contemporary issues through expert-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.

The Socrates Program is pleased in 2022 to be offering in person as well as hybrid seminars. Please check our Program Calendar for all our upcoming seminars. During the Covid crisis we pivoted to online programming, recording weekly webinars as part of Socrates Goes Digital. The first Socrates digital event, Learning from Lincoln: Leadership in a Time of Crisis. You can view all recordings on the Socrates Goes Digital website.
