Aspen Initiative UK
Aspen UK is an independent charity which supports and inspires leaders to transform themselves and their society.
Aspen UK plays an active role in bridging the UK’s political, social and cultural divides. We champion civic discourse and provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues.
We help leaders from all facets of society become more aware of their own values, more tolerant of a diversity of perspectives, and more inspired to contribute to positive change.
Aspen UK’s mission is to widen the lens of leaders, inspiring them to walk in the shoes of others and in doing so become better leaders. We drive change through dialogue – we bring together people who may disagree with one another, in private convenings and public talks.
Aspen UK’s vision is of a stronger, healthier, more tolerant democratic society, which embraces diversity of opinion, and thrives on the discussion and debate needed to address the evolving challenges we face.
Aspen UK is not a think-tank – it is the opposite of a club. We convene leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds, geographies, industries, and sectors, to guarantee a range of voices, experiences, and perspectives.
Aspen UK runs a series of exciting webinars and podcasts, illuminating rather than obscuring some of our most pressing national challenges with a bright array of thinkers.
‘At a time when understanding the interests of a wide group of stakeholders is more important than ever, the Aspen UK Seminar was an exceptional opportunity to develop different perspectives on strategic thinking and leadership.’
