Aspen Institute

Inspired by The Atlantic's enduring partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival, the third-annual Washington Ideas Forum gathered an audience of over 600 guests, including government officials, top business executives, global thought leaders, academics, and celebrities. It is the place to hear - and meet - the most prominent thinkers of our time.

On October 5 and 6, the Forum once again brought the best and brightest to the table for debate, conversation, and idea-sharing.
