What We Do

The Next Generation
of Leaders

The Aspen Institute Forum on Women and Girls lifts up promising ideas and leaders and builds on the strength of families to help women and girls in the U.S. and around the world move toward opportunity. The Forum is a dynamic thought leadership and action effort that taps perspectives across sectors, generations, race, and ethnicity, and curates conversations that confront the most pressing and opportune issues of our time.

The Forum leverages the convening power of the Aspen Institute for conversations and programs with diverse, creative, and bold social justice leaders to advance women’s economic justice, political participation, civic engagement, and leadership. Our goal is to create a space for the next generation of conversations, leaders, and solutions to unlock the full potential of women and girls in the U.S. and across the globe.
