Leadership Now Project

The Leadership Now Project was incubated by a group of Harvard Business School alumni as an innovative model for sustained and strategic engagement to fix democracy. Its membership organization of business professionals are concerned about the future of our democracy. It enables its members to strategically engage & invest in politics through a focus on the threats to the fundamentals of democracy: Issues including low voter turnout, gerrymandering, campaign finance rules, and a lack of highly qualified candidates are problems that require immediate attention as well as a long-term focus.

This is a joint briefing with the Leadership Now Project and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, featuring CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Vanita Gupta.

Our democracy is our foundational institution, the one that shapes all other institutions, and our democracy is broken.We'll kick off the briefing with a look at Leadership Now's latest analysis on how democracy and racial injustice are fundamentally connected. Then we will hear from Vanita Gupta, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and former Head of the U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division, on what we can do to fix our democracy and address structural racism at its root.

Briefing: Yuval Levin and the Critical Importance of Institutions in the era of Coronavirus

Organizer: Leadership Now Project

Join us for a conversation with author Yuval Levin of the American Enterprise Institute about his new book, A Time to Build. As Levin argues, now is not a time to tear down, but rather to build and rebuild by committing ourselves to the institutions around us. From the military to churches, from families to schools, these institutions provide the forms and structures we need to be free. By taking concrete steps to help them be more trustworthy, we can renew the ties that bind Americans to one another.
