Our Mission and Approach
Building a better future by strengthening mission-driven organizations and developing the next generation of leaders.
For over two decades, New Sector Alliance has incubated and grown cutting-edge program models that support diverse, forward-thinking leaders as they design careers, lives, and organizations that change the world. Through cross-sector alliances with philanthropic funders, nonprofits, and private corporations, our programs invest in highly capable leaders and support them as they apply future-focused practices to address urgent challenges and opportunities.
Our approach is grounded in empirical academic research, drawing on disciplines spanning business, economics, education, organizational behavior, product design, public policy, and psychology. To date, we’ve scaled our programs through partnerships with 500+ leading organizations including Accenture, AmeriCorps, The American Red Cross, The Boston Foundation, Goodwill, The Greenlight Fund, Net Impact, Upwardly Global, The Taproot Foundation, TechSoup, Year Up, and many others. These partnerships have enabled us to collectively reach hundreds of thousands of individuals and organizations and make an ongoing impact on many of the most pressing issues of our time.
Our vision is a new sector where leaders from academia, business, government, and the nonprofit sector collaborate to create innovative solutions for society's most pressing challenges and opportunities.
We engage with great people and ideas across sectors to achieve an outsized impact that improves lives, organizations, and the world.
