The Leadership Now Project is a nonpartisan membership organization of business professionals who are concerned with the future of our democracy. We commit to being part of the solution using our time, expertise, networks and resources. Our members are diverse in their political views, professions, racial and ethnic backgrounds but are united by the belief that galvanized America’s founders, E Pluribus Unum - out of many, one.
We focus on threats to the fundamentals of our democracy that prevent principled leaders and meaningful policy from advancing. As Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter has argued, the lack of competition in the politics industry is failing America. Low voter turnout, gerrymandering, campaign finance rules, and a lack of highly qualified candidates are problems that require our time, attention, resources, and above all, our combined voices.
The Leadership Now Project deepens our members’ engagement in civic renewal and cultivates leaders of integrity who are committed to uniting, rather than further dividing, our nation.
