Equipping nonprofits to advance social change

Take the 2019 Race to Lead Survey Today

In 2016, the Building Movement Project conducted a national survey on race and leadership in nonprofits. The data from that survey led to the development of the popular Race to Lead report series. This summer, the Race to Lead survey is back! By participating, survey respondents will contribute to one of the largest existing data sets on race and leadership in the nonprofit sector and will help inform the next round of Race to Lead reports. The confidential survey is open to anyone working for pay in the U.S. nonprofit sector and takes about 25 minutes to fill out. Just go to: bit.ly/RacetoLeadSurvey!

We’ve had several people reach out to us expressing interest in supporting the survey effort. Thank you! Here’s what you can do:
