Leaders shared them at the premier event for finding solutions to our world’s pressing problems: The Aspen Ideas Festival.
“You are serious about financial inclusion and working with people who haven’t just been overlooked, but have been shut out of a conversation about their lives. What have you learned about sharing power with people who aren’t inclined to trust you? Dylan, over to you.”
This question was posed to Dylan Tyson, president, Retirement Strategies, during a panel discussion titled “Is Trust the Ultimate Currency of Stakeholder Capitalism?” at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Tyson joined leaders from Allstate, Edelman and Mastercard in a conversation led by Fortune senior editor Ellen McGirt. They discussed how the private sector should foster trust and manage the new demands of societal issues.
The festival, held from June 24 to July 1, brought together innovative and progressive thinkers tackling today’s thorniest societal issues. Prudential executives were among that group, serving as thought leaders on how to expand access to prosperity in America by reimagining work, wealth and capitalism.
The festival was also a chance to commemorate Prudential’s ongoing work with the Aspen Institute, which began a decade ago to increase financial security. For the latest iteration of this partnership, Equity Re-Imagined, the company has pledged $11 million over five years to improve worker resilience and reduce the racial wealth gap by expanding access to financial resources and tools.
