OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS
Washington, DC
Gazing out the windows of the Institute’s new Washington, DC headquarters—with panoramic
views of Rock Creek Park, Dupont Circle, and Georgetown—makes you feel as if you are standing
on an urban mountaintop. The 90,000-square-foot space at 2300 N Street NW was designed by
OTJ Architects and built by Davis Construction. The designers chose to work in the modernist
idiom of renowned Bauhaus architect Herbert Bayer, who designed the Institute’s Aspen
Meadows campus. The new headquarters offers staff a more collaborative work environment
and provides larger, enhanced gathering spaces for public events. Support from the Institute’s
generous donors (please see page 46) made the whole venture possible.

POLICY
PROGRAMS
Nonpartisan initiatives that
drive dialogue and action on
today’s challenges

Aspen Institute policy programs are unlike those of other organizations.


They draw on the Institute’s unparalleled convening power as a nonparti-
san group to create forums for analysis, problem solving, and consensus
building. Programs gather evidence and bring it to bear on a wide range
of domestic and global issues, gathering leaders and experts to reach
constructive and innovative solutions. Each program is unique in its sub-
stance and approach. Together the Institute’s programs share a common
mission and methodology: convene people of diverse perspectives to
engage in informed dialogue that leads to action.

mission is to create spaces where people can explore
these issues for deeper understanding of other people’s

schools, and the media to help raise awareness, share
knowledge, and activate learning using a variety of tools

LEADERSHIP NETWORK
MULTI-YEAR PROGRAMS WHERE LEADERS
EXPLORE THEIR CORE VALUES TO DRIVE ACTION
IN THEIR COMMUNITIES AND BUSINESSES

The Aspen Global Leadership Network is a worldwide community of


entrepreneurial leaders committed to making the world a better place.
The network fellows are selected to be part of one of 14 geographic or
sector-specific initiatives around the world—all modeled after the Aspen
Institute’s flagship Henry Crown Fellowship Program. Fellowship gath-
erings 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 busi-
nesses and positions to promote the free flow of information, bridge the
educational achievement gap, fight rare diseases, stop domestic violence,
and help the elderly. Today, the Aspen Global Leadership Network num-
bers more than 2,700 fellows in 60 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 oth-
er leaders from Aspen Institute programs and partners, spurring them to
move from thought to action.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGNS
Building the Future of the Institute
The Institute’s recently renovated Aspen Meadows Reception Center and Pavilion and new
Washington, DC Headquarters will serve as important gathering places for people from all over the
world to exchange ideas, commit to values-based leadership, and take action to address some of
the world’s most complex problems. In Aspen, the renovation reflects Herbert Bayer’s original vision
and classic Bauhaus design. This aesthetic also influenced the building choice and design in DC,
which carries the spirit of the Aspen Meadows campus all the way to Washington. The Institute is
extremely grateful to our generous friends whose support helped make these new spaces possible.

Institute that not only buttress great programs and fellowships but also significantly broaden the

included high school leaders from cities like Newark, Oakland, and St. Louis, international
