  • The Challenge of Leadership focuses on the qualities of leadership necessary to master the forces of change. Fellows discuss their own leadership challenges and develop criteria for effective, enlightened leadership.
  • The Aspen Seminar is the Aspen Institute's foundational seminar. It gives the opportunity to explore the concept of the "good society" and the Fellows' leadership role in making it a reality.
  • Leading in an Era of Globalization explores the challenges of leading in an increasingly complex and intertwined world. Aspen Global Leadership Network Fellows from countries such around the world attend jointly.
  • The Promise of Leadership explores the concepts of legacy and life balance. Fellows share the progress achieved, challenges encountered and lessons learned from their leadership projects.

There are now four classes of Finance Leaders Fellows, making a total of 83 Fellows from 19 countries. This Fellowship affirms its commitment to creating a change in the global finance community and encourages a diversity of leadership and thought. Here is a list of all Finance Leaders Fellows by class year.

Finance Leaders Fellows will join nearly 3,000 other Fellows from 50 countries to become members of the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN).  The AGLN is composed of accomplished leaders who have participated in similar Aspen Institute leadership initiatives in education, healthcare, and environment as well as regionally in the United States, Africa, Central America, China, India, and the Middle East – all designed to help accomplished leaders, mostly business leaders, move from "success to significance." Fellows engage across Fellowships through the “Leading in an Era of Globalization” seminar, as well as larger annual events like the Resnick Aspen Action Forum.
