As part of the Aspen Institute’s Advancing Opportunity Initiative, the Institute hosted the Summit on Inequality and Opportunity on November 19. This event was a one-day gathering dedicated to nonpartisan dialogue about the widening opportunity gap in the United States. The summit brought together over 200 policy makers, thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and practitioners from all over the country for a day of ideas, problem solving, and values-based exchange.
