Dan Porterfield, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, discusses the American Talent Initiative and the College Excellence Program’s leadership work.
This week’s Business of Giving features Dan Porterfield, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute. With a $150 million budget, the international nonprofit runs about 60 programs focused on education, leadership, and policy studies.
Porterfield talks about being a leader. He says the organization evolves about once a decade as social needs change, but it is always focused on “gathering people together for important conversations about how to ensure that our country is a free, just, and equitable society.”
