Committment to Action 
At the Action Forum, hundreds of leaders made Action Pledges: public commitments to the community that put their values to work to create positive societal change. Here are a few of the pledges made this year:
I will scale the impact of my Aspen venture, currently educating 4,500 children in 76 schools in Bangalore every year, for free, in English and computer literacy, to reach over 10,000 children every year, over the next 
three years.
I will improve psychological resilience for 1 million people in the U.S. by 2022.
I will deliver an accessible and accredited organisational governance training programme across Africa that can provide tools to enable the next generation of stewards to transform the continent.
I will amplify and center the racial civic leadership and power of 10,000 Black, Latinx, and Indigenous youth within the United States by 2025.
I will continue working to create 5,000 new jobs for people previously involved in violence in El Salvador by 2024.
We [Paul Hastings LLP] pledge to combat modern slavery by partnering with at least ten global financial institutions to develop targeted due diligence processes to disrupt the financial flows that sustain and finance the perpetrators of this global violation of human rights.
I will produce an online video series to reach an audience of 5 million that aims to build cross-cultural bridges amongst youth in China and the U.S. by 2022.
In my new role, I pledge to use my platform as CEO of S&P Dow Jones Indices to promote more inclusive diversity and inclusion leadership in financial services.
Through the Global Inclusive Growth Partnership, I will launch the Global Inclusive Growth Spark Grants to provide catalytic funding to critical initiatives led by AGLN Fellows that reimagines more inclusive economic futures for all.

Virtual Connection and Collaboration 
While not being able to gather in person, we used two new platforms to create intimate conversations and serendipitous connection opportunties. Read about Seminars and and the AGLN Collaboratory on Remo below.
Seminars in

Translating the classic Aspen Institute seminar experience into the virtual space was made possible with partnership from 2014 Henry Crown Fellow Dan Hoffmann and his virtual convening platform Inspired by his Fellowship experience, Dan founded specifically to bring fellowship-level connection and transformative dialogue into the digital world. With this technology, more than 350 leaders from 35 countries enjoyed seminars from their living rooms, offices, and kitchens and were able to take time to pause and reflect on their values, leadership, and greatest challenges. Readings included "Continue," by Maya Angelou, "Once the World Was Perfect," by Joy Harjo, “Sentence,” by Tadeusz Dąbrowski. Check out the readings here.

The AGLN Collaboratory on Remo

The AGLN Collaboratory created a virtual central “Hub” where you leaders could gather following sessions to reconnect with familiar faces, meet other Fellows for the first time, or discover new opportunities to collaborate. The space was made of virtual “tables” inside the platform Remo. Fellows submitted ideas and issues they wanted to host discussions around. Through these conversations, new connections and collaboration opportunities surfaced to forward one another's work. Topics included: This space provided the opportunity for class and seminar reunions. Lebanon Relief, Resilient Housing, Mental Health For All During and Post-Covid, Capitalism Astray, Inclusive Growth, Race, Pain and Leadership, and more.

Youth Action Forum 
In addition to adult participants, the Action Forum provided the opportunity to reconnect and refresh for 150 global youth. These youth participants joined the plenary "Calling for a Moral Revolution" and then continued the conversation in age-based breakout groups.

To continue the Action Forum experience, youth participants also received the Youth Action Forum conversation guide. The guide includes the 2020 Action Forum readings, reading-level and language support, reflection questions, and conversation questions to have a seminar-level discussion at your own kitchen table. We encourage youth participants to dive into the readings and consider how they can bring their learnings and reflections out into the world around them.

We're excited to share the following offers to continue to make space to pause, reflect, and now that the Action Forum has concluded.
