A NONPARTISAN FORUM FOR VALUES-BASED
LEADERSHIP AND THE EXCHANGE OF IDEAS

EMBRACING THE FUTURE
The Aspen Institute is a place of ideas. Ideas are our lifeblood.
And creating a nonpartisan space where ideas can be exchanged—civilly, productively,
and without fear of judgment—is an ever-more-important part of our mission.
That mission means looking toward the future and finding the next Technological innovations make life easier, too—and the Institute is

THE ISAACSON ERA
2003-2017
In March 2017, Walter Isaacson announced he would be stepping down after
serving for 14 years as president and CEO of the Aspen Institute. On hearing the
news, everyone deeply involved with the Institute recognized at once that we
have all been profoundly changed by his time here.
Announcing the decision, Chairman of the Board Jim Crown wrote: “Walter’s leader-
ship has been remarkable, and while he leaves the Institute in the strongest position
in its history, he will be missed by all of us. Looking back, I would reflect on how the
foundation of the Institute paved the way for other ‘think tanks’ and policy-based
associations. There were few such organizations in the period after World War II, and
the vision of Walter Paepcke was to establish a values-based, nonpartisan forum
where thought leaders could assemble and discuss the meaning and value of ‘the
good life.’ This was the Institute’s first Golden Age. The second Golden Age for the
Institute has been under Walter Isaacson’s similarly visionary leadership.”
The list of ways the Institute changed under that leadership is too long to detail,
and is in fact on every page of this report. But some of the highlights include cre-
ating an entire division of the Institute devoted to public programs, including the
signature Aspen Ideas Festival; upgrading the Aspen Meadows campus and build-
ing a conference hall and tent to bring the world to Aspen; establishing the Aspen
Global Leadership Network and an expansion of international partnerships all
over the globe; forming policy programs on critical issues as diverse as homeland
and cyber security, health and medicine, and race and identity; creating IDEAS,
the magazine that brings news of the Institute to the world, greatly expanding the
scope and influence of the Institute's digital platforms; and bringing new emphasis
and resources to youth leadership and engagement.
Jim Crown asked Trustee Madeleine Albright to speak for the board as the last order
of business at its annual April meeting, held for the first time in Chicago—birthplace
of the Institute itself, under the guiding vision of Walter Paepcke (“the first Walter,”
as he came to be known in the Isaacson Era). “While there's no denying that Walter
transformed the Aspen Institute,” she said, “I think it is also fair to say that the Aspen
Institute transformed him. He came into the job as a well-regarded journalist and
author. He leaves Aspen not only as one of the preeminent biographers of our time
but also as a changemaker in his own right. This is what makes Walter so special—he
is not just a dreamer, he is a doer. And what he has done for Aspen, and with Aspen,
has been nothing short of spectacular.”
Her conclusion spoke not just for those in the room but for the greater Institute
community: “Walter, I think I speak for everyone on the board when I say we are
better for having known you, and this Institute is better for having been led by you.”

POLICY PROGRAMS
NONPARTISAN INITIATIVES THAT DRIVE DIALOGUE
AND ACTION ON TODAY'S CHALLENGES
www.aspeninstitute.org/policy-work

Aspen Institute policy programs provide nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus building,
and problem solving on pressing contemporary public policy issues. They frame critical topics,
bring new evidence to bear on a wide range of issues, propose innovative ideas, and gather
leaders and experts to reach constructive solutions. Each program serves as an impartial forum,
and each is unique in its substance and approach. Together they share a common mission and
methodology: convening diverse perspectives for informed dialogue and action.

ASCEND AT THE ASPEN INSTITUTE
ascend.aspeninstitute.org
Ascend is the national hub for breakthrough ideas and collaborations to
move children and their parents toward educational success and econom-
ic security by embracing a two-generation approach and a commitment
to racial equity and viewing issues through a gender lens. Two-generation
approaches provide opportunities for and meet the needs of both children
and their parents. We believe that education, economic support, social
capital, and health and well-being are the core components that create an
intergenerational cycle of opportunity. Ascend makes a difference in the lives
of children, parents, and families by elevating and investing in a portfolio of
solutions—informed by the voices of families and fueled by political will and a
national network of leaders.

that the business sector has immense power to shape the long-term health of
society, and works through dialogue, networks, and public programs to place
long-term, responsible decision-making at the heart of business practice and
education. Its programs help business faculty and executives consider society’s
“grand challenges,” including climate, resource scarcity, and inequality and
global health, through the lens of business risk—and also business opportunity.
The program’s First Movers Fellowship for social “intrapreneurs”—exceptional
business innovators who are integrating profitability and social value into their
companies—provides a reflective space for Fellows to share practices, gain
courage, and acquire tools to lead change. Its Leaders Forum engages senior
executives who are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a socially,
environmentally, and economically sustainable company. Other signature
programs include Faculty Pioneers and an undergraduate network linking the
liberal arts and business. These programs highlight cutting-edge teaching
techniques and research on social and environmental stewardship.

LEADERSHIP INITIATIVES
ASPEN GLOBAL LEADERSHIP NETWORK
MULTI-YEAR PROGRAMS WHERE LEADERS EXPLORE THEIR CORE
VALUES TO DRIVE ACTION IN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND BUSINESSES
agln.aspeninstitute.org
The Aspen Global Leadership Network is a worldwide community of successful, high-integrity, entrepreneurial leaders
committed to making the world a better place. Fellows are selected to be part of one of 14 geographic or sector-specific
initiatives around the world—all modeled after the Aspen Institute flagship Henry Crown Fellowship Program. They enter this
experience having demonstrated a great deal of personal success and leave it inspired to make a significant mark on their
communities and the world. Fellowship gatherings provide space for introspection, probing dialogue, and problem solving.
The vast majority of Fellows are senior business leaders, and they are asked to bring their leadership to bear on a pressing
societal concern by launching a venture of their choosing. Fellows are using their businesses and their positions to build
pipelines for ethical leadership, protect cultural heritage, promote environmental sustainability, create new ventures and
jobs, bridge the educational achievement gap, fight rare diseases, stop ethnic violence, and connect rural people to global
information. Today, the Aspen Global Leadership Network numbers more than 2,400 Fellows in 50 countries and continues to
grow. The network connects Fellows online as well as at regular events including its flagship event—the Resnick Aspen Action
Forum, an annual gathering that brings together Aspen Global Leadership Network Fellows and other leaders from Aspen
Institute programs and partners, spurring them to move from thought to action.

POLICY LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
Born from the many policy programs at the Aspen Institute, Policy Leadership Programs seek to empower exceptional individuals
to lead with innovation in their chosen fields. As a result, these individuals then become more effective change agents who can
influence the institutions and fields in which they work and create better outcomes for society.

“As a nation, we had previously accepted the fundamental premise that nothing is beyond the reach of
the government with appropriate protection and appropriate use of the court. Yet we seem to be in a
different place now where we're not quite as comfortable. We cannot vilify each other. We have to make
sure that these two incredibly foundational imperatives for us as a country are executed in a way that the
one doesn't undermine the other.”

tools of intellectual analysis, test the wellsprings of their convictions, and enhance their capacities to think more
creatively in solving the problems that confront society.

WYE ACADEMIC SEMINARS
www.aspeninstitute.org/wyefaculty
In a longstanding collaboration with the Association of American Colleges
and Universities, these seminars engage faculty, senior academic admin-
istrators, and college presidents in an exchange of ideas about education,
citizenship, and the global polity. Sessions address the need for a liberal arts
institution’s faculty and leadership to exchange ideas with colleagues from
other colleges and disciplines while exploring the ideas and values that un-
derlie their teaching. Modeled after the Aspen Executive Seminar and offered
at the Institute’s Wye River campus near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the
seminars focus on issues such as citizenship, civil dialogue, and the public
purpose of education.

INSTITUTIONAL ADVANCEMENT
THE HERITAGE SOCIETY GROWS TO 25 MEMBERS IN 2016
The Heritage Society is a community of supporters who have named the Aspen Institute as a beneficiary of
their will or trust, or have completed a charitable trust. It is made up of Institute Trustees, Lifetime Trustees,
members of the Society of Fellows, and other generous friends. We are honored to have added our 25th
member to this special legacy community in 2016.

Bequests and other estate gifts are critical to securing the Institute's future and helping us perpetuate lifelong
learning and enlightened leadership for generations to come. We recognize that donors who have elevated
us to the level of family by including us in their estate plans do so out of their hearts, not for the benefits;
but we also welcome the opportunity to honor those who have made this deeply personal commitment.

“Over the years, we have been pleased to witness and support the growing cultural and
intellectual impact of the Aspen Institute—both here in the Roaring Fork Valley and around
the world. We have had a bequest in our will to the Institute for some time and decided to
formalize it as a statement of support and confidence in this exceptional organization. We are
proud to help the Institute reach new heights of influence for generations to come.”
­— Soledad and Robert Hurst, Aspen Institute Trustee

“A lot of us don't pay enough attention to the issue of estate planning and what's going to
happen with whatever assets we have. My motivation is to help to support the Aspen Global
Leadership Network by furthering its endowment in the long run. Of course, others choosing
to give would be a great byproduct of my contribution too.”
­— William Mayer, Aspen Institute Trustee

“If you have someone to mentor you and are exposed to new ideas and concepts, it can
transform a life. That is what we hope to do. Our bequest to support Roaring Fork Valley youth
will enable students from economically disadvantaged families to take part in Aspen Institute
dialogues and events they would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend.”
­— Rebecca Donelson and Robert Blattberg, Society of Fellows members
