WHO WE ARE: The Leadership Now Project is a membership organization of business and thought leaders who are committed to high-impact solutions to renew American democracy. Leadership Now has four guiding principles that transcend political parties: to protect democracy while renewing it; to promote fact and evidence-based policymaking; to create an economy that works for all, and to embrace diversity as an asset. In 2023-2024, the organization is focused on safeguarding against a continued slide away from democracy, reinvigorating talent and innovation in politics to reduce polarization, and growing our state presence to respond to risks and opportunities driven by legislation and legal decisions at a state level.

Our work is fast-paced, analytical, and risk-tolerant. We power reforms to our system through sophisticated analytics; engage in thought leadership; mobilize new investments in a portfolio of reform organizations, and recognize political leaders who change the game and share our principles.
