The Aspen Institute

New York, NY

The Aspen Institute, founded in 1950, is an international non-profit organization dedicated to fostering enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue. Through seminars, policy programs, conferences and leadership development initiatives, the Institute seeks to promote non-partisan inquiry and an appreciation for timeless values. The Aspen Institute Roundtable on Community Change focuses on the problems of distressed communities and seeks solutions to individual, family and neighborhood poverty. It convenes leaders across key sectors and provides a safe environment for them to examine and develop ways to address issues of common concern, conducts applied and policy research on critical challenges facing the field of community change, serves as a technical advisor to leaders who are actively engaged in activities designed to improve outcomes for low-income children, youth and families, and distills lessons in the field nationally and internationally. It utilizes a number of strategies to advance the field, such as leadership development seminars, publications, public speaking, and websites. The Roundtable’s Project on Structural Racism and Community Building aims to dismantle structural racism through the Racial Equity and Society Seminar series, research on youth development and criminal justice, the Racial Equity and Social Peer Learning Forum, and a clearinghouse for key resources on racism, racial disparity and racial equity.
