The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster enlightened leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with issues critical to our society. The Institute has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It also maintains offices in New York City and has an international network of partners in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
The Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN) is a growing, worldwide community of entrepreneurial leaders from business, government and the nonprofit sector – more than 2,300 "Fellows" from 49 countries -- who share a commitment to enlightened leadership and to using their extraordinary creativity, energy and resources to tackle the foremost societal challenges of our times. All share the common experience of participating in the Henry Crown Fellowship or one of the 13 active Aspen Global Leadership Network initiatives it has inspired in the United States, Africa, Central America, India, the Middle East and China.
The China Fellowship Program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of responsible, community-spirited business leaders in China. Over the past three decades, China has experienced an economic and social transformation on a scale and at a speed unlike anything witnessed in recorded history. The achievements of the past thirty years in lifting hundreds of millions from poverty, building the world's second largest economy and thrusting China onto the world stage are truly awe-inspiring. As daunting as this task has been, what lies ahead for China over the next decades is an even greater challenge -- how to build a progressive, prosperous 'good' society in an increasingly globalized world community.
Using the time-tested Aspen Institute method of text-based dialogue and building upon the Institute's commitment to values-based, action-oriented leadership, the program will provide 20-22 Chinese “Fellows” with the impetus and perspectives necessary for effective, enlightened leadership in business – and in society at-large.
