Speaking and Training

If your organization seeks more customized, hands-on support, Building Movement Project conducts keynotes, workshops, presentations, and also offers consulting services for nonprofit organizations and foundations.

With over two decades of experience, the BMP team understands the short- and long-term effects of social and political change on the nonprofit sector. We draw on this expertise to help organizations navigate internal and external changes, build greater momentum, and achieve new victories.

Our staff has deep experience and can speak to a number of topics: DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) in the nonprofit sector, the role nonprofits play in movement building, how to integrate social service and social change, leadership transitions, solidarity practice, building multigenerational organizations, and much more. Check out our upcoming events below or explore our trainings and presentations on specific focus areas.
