About the Aspen Institute

The Aspen Institute’s mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals
to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced
venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Institute does this primarily in four ways:

• Seminars, which help participants reflect on what they think makes a good society, thereby
deepening knowledge, broadening perspectives, and enhancing their capacity to solve the
problems leaders face.

• Young-leader fellowships around the globe, which bring a selected class of proven leaders
together for an intense multiyear program and commitment. The Fellows become better
leaders and apply their skills to significant challenges.

• Policy programs, which serve as nonpartisan forums for analysis, consensus-building, and
problem-solving on a wide variety of issues.

• Public conferences and events, which provide a commons for people to share ideas.

The Institute is based in Washington, DC; Aspen, Colorado; and on the Wye River on Maryland’s
Eastern Shore. The Institute also has offices in New York City and an international network of partners.
“ A t the Aspen Institute we respect the
traditions of our values and ideals,
but we are also looking to the future
for how we can be more imaginative
in a wide variety of fields—from the
environment to education to foreign
policy to creating the right new group
of young global leaders. We are trying
to find the most creative thinking and
translate that into leadership.”
Walter Isaacson, President and CEO, The Aspen Institute
The Power of Great Ideas

Aspen Institute founder Walter Paepcke was a great believer


in the transformative power of modern art in advertising. As chairman of
the Container Corporation of America, Paepcke commissioned advertising
artwork over the years by many prominent artists, illustrators, and designers
who celebrated great ideas, including this one from Alexis de Tocqueville’s
classic Democracy in America, a text that has served since the beginning of
the Aspen Institute as one of the core readings in its seminars.
The values and principles of democracy have been at the forefront of
a number of the Institute’s recent programs and partnerships, from
conferences on educating for democracy in a digital age and reports on
the information needs of democratic communities to conversations about
privacy and democracy, a series on civility and making our democracy
work, discussions of women as a critical force in democratic governance,
dialogues on democracy and our schools, projects on economic opportunity,
and considerations of whether democracy will take root in the Arab world
as protests and uprisings sweep across the Middle East and North Africa at
what seems to be a defining moment for the region.
Since its creation more than 60 years ago, the Aspen Institute has witnessed
times of enormous change at home and abroad, and it has always
remained a place where those changes can be examined and understood
from different perspectives. Just as Walter Paepcke wanted his company
advertising to serve a public interest, so the Aspen Institute’s seminars,
policy programs, public events, and leadership programs serve the public
interest by addressing urgent social and cultural issues, educating leaders
and decision-makers of all kinds, seeking policy solutions, and offering a
venue for informed public debate and nonpartisan dialogue.
As these pages describe, the power of great ideas—old and new—
continues to inform our mission, drive our work, and guide our commitment
to understanding the world both as it is and as it should be.
“ T he Aspen Institute intends to be a
place of excellence and excitement
where men and women of the finest
qualities of mind and spirit from
all walks of life in the United States
and abroad can meet to learn from
one another by serious discussion of
the most important problems facing
man and the greatest ideas that have
been expressed throughout history
concerning these problems.”

Joseph E. Slater, President of the Aspen Institute, 1969-1986


Robert O. Anderson, President of the Aspen Institute, 1957-1963,
and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 1963-1987

Advancing Public Policy Through Dialogue and Action
www.aspeninstitute.org/policy-work

The Aspen Institute policy programs advance public and private sector
knowledge on the most pressing issues facing contemporary society.
Policy programs frame critical topics, bring new evidence, propose innovative
new ideas, and convene leaders and experts to reach constructive solutions
to issues. While each is unique in substance and approach, the Institute’s
policy programs share a common mission and methodology. Each serves as
an impartial forum, bringing a diversity of perspectives together in informed
dialogue, research, and action.

Leadership Programs
Developing Leaders at Home and Abroad
www.aspeninstitute.org/leadership

For more than a decade, the Aspen Institute has supported programs for
accomplished leaders in the United States and around the world. Beginning
with the creation of the Henry Crown Fellowship Program, these initiatives have
a common goal of encouraging a new generation of civically engaged men and
women to move “from success to significance” and apply their entrepreneurial
talents to addressing the foremost challenges of their organizations, communities,
and countries. Each Aspen Global Leadership Network program selects a class
of Fellows, approximately 20 proven leaders typically between the ages of 30 and
45, and convenes them several times over the course of two years for a series of
intensive leadership seminars. Fellows are also required to design and carry out
high-impact community projects. The Institute has gathered its leadership Fellows
and initiatives into an international network to connect leaders across programs
and leverage their talents on a global basis. Today, the Aspen Global Leadership
Network counts more than 1,300 Fellows in 43 countries, and it continues to grow.
Another leadership program, the First Movers Fellowship, founded by the
Institute’s Business and Society Program, seeks to have the business community
live up to its full potential as a vehicle for positive social change.

Sidney Harman
1918-2011

Aspen Institute Trustee (2000-2011)

I
n 1931, Albert Einstein published the following passage in
a paper titled “The World as I See It”: “The most beautiful
experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental
emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true
science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder,
no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.”
Einstein’s comment has enormous application to the world
of business. Interpret his “mysterious” as “curious.” Then think
of creative curiosity as driving one to think anew and to
reject the orthodoxy that declares, “This is how we always
do things.” See it as prompting systems thinking rather than
bureaucratic process. When you see that in a senior executive,
you are looking at the material of leadership, creativity, and
serious response to a changing business universe.

From remarks delivered by Sidney Harman at the


Institute’s 2004 celebration of Albert Einstein

Special Funding for Scholarships and
Program Excellence
The lifeblood of the Aspen Institute continues to be the leaders who come into our programs.
Starting with the Executive Seminar in the 1950s and continuing with the Henry Crown
Fellowship Program and all leadership programs, the Institute has engaged entrepreneurs,
elected officials, nonprofit leaders, and others in examining what it takes to lead a life that is
good, useful, worthy, and meaningful.
In 2010, the Aspen Institute was pleased to award over $1 million in scholarship support to
400 scholars from 30 countries. Across our programs we aim to achieve a balance of gender,
ethnicities, nationalities, political affiliations, and professions, convening leaders who will, in
turn, extend the reach and resonance of civility in an increasingly complex world.
The Institute gratefully acknowledges the donors who made gifts and pledges in support of
scholarships in 2010, as well as those whose generosity in prior years created funds that can be
tapped for future needs and opportunities.
