About the Global Inclusive Growth Partnership

The Center for Inclusive Growth & the Aspen Institute

Between 2019 and 2023, the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth and the Aspen Institute worked together to co-host three Global Inclusive Growth Summits (2019 in-person; 2021 all-virtual; and 2023 hybrid). The Summits successfully brought together leaders from around the world, engaged in dialogue about the challenges of creating a more globally inclusive system of growth. Beyond the Summits, the Global Inclusive Growth Partnership (GIGP) has sought to address systemic issues across a range of topics including financial security, the future of workers and portable benefits, growing micro and small businesses, and commercial-sustainable social impact. As of 2024, the Aspen Institute is no longer a co-host of the Global Inclusive Growth Summit although the Center for Inclusive Growth and the Aspen Institute remain partners through other programmatic work.
