The Management Center

We want to see more social change in this country, and we know that producing it is hard. Disparities in money and power mean that social justice advocates need to fight not just as effectively as their opponents, but more effectively. That’s where The Management Center comes in: we help social justice leaders learn how to build and run more effective organizations, so that they can get better results.

As the go-to resource on effective management for social change organizations, we’ve worked with more than 100 of the most influential progressive groups in the country and trained thousands of individual managers on the practices that help high-performing organizations deliver lasting results over time.

We offer both intensive hands-on coaching services for executive directors and their senior leadership teams, as well as a series of management training courses that supply practical advice and tools that managers can put to work immediately.

Since 2006, The Management Center has:

  • shaped the management practices of more than 10,000 individual leaders through our training program
  • helped more than 350 organizations get better results through stronger management
  • distributed more than 25,000 copies of our book Managing to Change the World

We are an equal opportunity employer, are committed to racial equity, and we make a particular effort to recruit people of color, indigenous people, gender non-binary people, and people with historically marginalized identities to apply for open positions

We’re committed to making our own organization one where people from all backgrounds – and in particular people with marginalized identities – thrive. While we have a lot of learning still to do, we’re working hard to incorporate equity and inclusion into all aspects of our work. That’s leading us to do things like proactively seeking to work with more groups led by and for people of color, supporting identity-based caucuses for our staff (we have people of color and indigenous people, LGBTQ, and white-identified allies caucuses), and making sure each person on our team continually hones their own cultural proficiency skills.
