Nominations are open for the second class of the Finance Leaders Fellowship

The Aspen LeadershipThe Aspen Institute’s Finance Leaders Fellowship seeks to develop the next generation of responsible, community-spirited leaders in the global finance industry. This new, two-year program is modeled on the Henry Crown Fellowship which was established in 1996. Using the Aspen Institute method of text-based dialogue, and building upon the Institute’s commitment to values-based, action-oriented leadership, the program will spur selected Finance “Fellows” to consider values and perspectives necessary for effective, enlightened leadership in finance—and in society at-large.

The key objectives of the Fellowship are to:

  • Convene accomplished leaders in finance who will advance the industry to serve “at its very best” as Fellows.
  • Engage Fellows in a thought-provoking journey of personal exploration—to stretch themselves further.
  • Encourage Fellows to reflect on the historical importance of finance in well-functioning societies and current challenges in the sector—and commit themselves to playing an active role in shaping its future.

Please send us your nomination today!
