REALITY Socrates is a week-long leadership journey specifically curated for participants of The Aspen Institute Socrates Program. Trailblazers and emerging leaders from various sectors will build on their Socrates experience of examining current, pressing leadership challenges with an immersive exploration of Israel, while deepening friendships and partnerships with their Socrates peers. 

Participants engage in an intensive, thoughtfully curated itinerary designed to elevate their leadership and ignite their ambition to change the world. They explore Israel's culture and society as a platform for understanding the complexities in their own communities and industries. Application is by invitation only.

REALITY Socrates is a substantially subsidized* journey through Israel.
