About The Aspen Institute
When Chicago businessman Walter Paepcke first visited Aspen, Colorado, he was inspired by its great natural beauty. He envisioned it as an ideal gathering place for thinkers, leaders, artists, and musicians from all over the world to step away from their daily routines and reflect on the underlying values of society and culture. In 1949, Paepcke created what is now the Aspen Institute (Institute).
Today, the Institute is an international, people-serving, non-partisan organization that works with partners across the world to build a free, just, and equitable society. For nearly 70 years, the Institute has been rooted in humanistic studies and solutions that advance a mission to cultivate people to become more values-based and purpose-driven in their leadership; convene diverse thinkers and doers around critical questions and issues; elevate compelling ideas and works of art, literature, and culture; and nurture a strong civil society, accountable institutions, and effective problem-solving. The Institute is based in Washington, DC, with campuses and offices in Aspen, CO and New York City, and has an international network of partners.
One of the hallmarks of the Institute is the Aspen Global Leadership Network, which is an international network of 3,000+ high-integrity leaders from business, government, and nonprofit sectors, who share a commitment to using their extraordinary creativity, energy, and resources to tackle our world’s largest societal challenges. Through a rigorous selection process, Fellows are identified for their demonstrated accomplishments and abilities to be part of a life-long relationship with the AGLN Fellowship programs and broader network and community of thirteen geographic- or sector-specific Fellowships worldwide.
The Institute is now seeking a Vice President of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. This is a unique opportunity to strengthen and transform a growing international community of people and partners committed to life-long, values-based leadership and to have a real, positive impact in the world.
