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.


We hear all the time from managers, people of color and white folks alike, who say, “I’m committed to racial justice and equity, but I’m really wrestling with how to put that commitment into practice in my management practices.” Whether they’re newer allies, people with a lifetime of experience, or people whose awareness falls somewhere in between — we talk to plenty of managers who have great intentions but struggle with what to DO about it.

If you manage a team, understand the basics about power, privilege, and oppression, and want to put your commitment to racial equity in your management practices, we offer training to help.


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

As the founding CEO of The Management Center, Jerry brought together his dual passions for promoting social change and creating high-performing organizations.
