Women’s leadership is powerful. Throughout history, it’s fueled and reshaped our social and political landscape to bend toward equality and justice for all. Building on this history and their unparalleled contributions, the Aspen Forum on Women and Girls was founded to amplify and accelerate the bold visions of women and girls across the globe towards advancing economic justice, political participation, civic engagement, and leadership across race, gender, sectors, and generations.
Our SOAR Fellows are unapologetic toward realizing a better, inclusive, and equitable society. Marc Julmisse, leaped into action as the Interim executive director of Zanmi Lasante (Partners in Health) after an earthquake devastated her home country of Haiti, and JoRee LaFrance, an Apsáalooke scholar dedicated to advancing the leadership of indigenous women and girls as well as climate justice.
Like our values, the team that anchors and shapes the work of the Forum is diverse, dedicated to gender and racial justice and to moving the needle towards women and families living dignified, joyful, healthy, and economically prosperous lives. We are proud to be led by our co-chairs, Lola Adedokun, Executive Director of Aspen Global Innovators Group; Anne Mosle, Vice President of the Aspen Institute and Executive Director of Ascend; and Nikki Pitre, Executive Director of the Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute. Collectively, we are committed to creating the right conditions and conversations where women, girls, and communities thrive.
