Frequently Asked Questions

May I still submit a session proposal or speaker recommendation? 
The Call for Session for the 2023 Summit is now closed. For interest in future Summits, please submit your ideas at our next open call in Fall 2023.

I live outside of the US. How do you recommend participating from a different time zone? 
While the event will take place live (in Eastern Time), there will be recordings for each session. Attendees from other countries/time-zones have typically done a combination of 1) selecting a few sessions that they are really interested in participating in live and 2) watching the recordings when it’s not the middle of the night. And remember, you can still exchange messages and communicate/network with attendees through the virtual event platform. 

What Accessibility measures will be in place?
The 2023 Action Summit will be hosted virtually on our conference website/app, with sessions hosted in Zoom Webinar and Zoom Meeting. There will be auto-close-captions for all sessions. American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided for all Summit sessions. 

Session materials will be made available prior to the Summit via the Summit website/app that attendees can access ahead. Sessions will be recorded, unless otherwise noted, and recordings will be made available after for attendees for three months following the event. For other requests to support attendee accessibility, please reach out to Dulcy Kenner, Assistant Director, Conference Services, The Aspen Institute at

Do you provide simultaneous translation into other languages for attendees? At this time, the Summit is conducted in English. From time to time, we offer simultaneous translation from a different language into English if we host a speaker who is most comfortable presenting in another language.
