Leadership isn’t just about software.
And neither are we.

Join the community dedicated to more and better leaders.

Watch preview

HERE WE ARE is a live, film based experience that accelerates our capacity to have hard conversations.

Leading isn’t easy. You make the choice to step up and then you make it again a thousand times. To keep going requires resources beyond software. To keep going requires community.

That’s why we started NationBuilder chapters in cities all over the world. To have the conversations that need having. To share stories and resources–and to equip each other.

Sign up to join folks in your area and experience unique programming designed specifically for leaders. And if you don’t see a chapter in your area, sign up to start one.

Launch Event

June 29

We need more leaders. And better ones. So we're hosting IRL meetups to equip people with the skills they need to lead in this era, tackle the barriers to leadership that are holding us back, and work towards a future where everyone can lead. 

Join us for our launch event! We're kicking things off with a facilitated discussion about the challenges we're facing as leaders in LA. What does leadership look like? What's required of us to step up and lead? What barriers are we facing? We'll round out the night with drinks, bites and mingling.

Plus, we'll be calling on you to tell us what you need, for instance:

  • Who else should we partner with?

  • What should these meet-ups deliver so we can bust down barriers and equip each other?

  • Should we offer regular trainings on fundraising, facilitation, digital organizing and the other things that make leaders successful?

  • Should we host user meet-ups to share best practices for folks on NationBuilder?

  • Are there other speakers we should engage, or community building events we should host?

We're committed to supporting leaders in LA, IRL. We're relying on you to tell us how, so we can't wait to connect with you.

Dinner and Discussion with NationBuilder LA

September 12

Want to build community, share stories, and enjoy a great dinner with a diverse group of leaders? Join us for an intimate conversation meal to get to know other members of our community and share what’s important to you as a leader in this political and social climate. 

“If you bring people together from different backgrounds, and encourage them to have a one-on-one conversation in which they take off their masks, share part of their lives, and look through each other’s eyes, then you have created a small moment of equality and mutual understanding. And by multiplying these kinds of conversations, you can produce a microcosmic yet potent form of social change. Think of it as changing the world one conversation at a time.”

- Theodore Zeldin

**Tickets are available for $20 per person, which covers a delicious dinner from Lemonade and assorted beer & wine.**

Hiding in the Bathroom LA Book Release and C...

September 27

Join us for a special event celebrating the release of Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert's Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You'd Rather Stay Home) by Morra Aarons-Mele, founder of the award-winning social change agency Women Online. Morra will be in conversation with NationBuilder’s President Lea Endres (a fellow introvert) on some of the books juiciest topics. They’ll also discuss their unlikely trajectories, decisions and compromises, and how they’re doing their best to lead authentically. Come, ask questions, enjoy appetizers and drinks, and meet incredible people. (And get a copy of Morra’s book!)

 Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Conversation begins at 6:30 p.m.  


 

Wondering what Hiding in the Bathroom is about?

(a word from the Author)

It’s a roadmap for ambitious people who struggle with introversion, anxiety, or just crave a little more control over their work lives. It’s for entrepreneurs and executives alike, because if you’re driven and ambitious, conventional wisdom holds that you must network a lot. You must be always on. You must hustle and work 24-7. You must “get out there.” You must have a personal brand. You must put business first at all costs. 

It’s just not true.

There is no one kind of successful person. You can be the kind of success you want to be, and you can have a powerful career that sustains you- the real you. Here’s the truth: success takes skill- it’s not an inherent gift. And it’s not the exclusive provenance of extroverts or the carefree. 

Built on my decade of experience as a “hermit entrepreneur” and over 120 interviews, Hiding in the Bathroom shares skills, effective strategies, and real stories from people who’ve been there, and thrived by defining their own rules. We tackle the sometimes thorny emotions that accompany a big career, and help you create a plan for success that feels great.

Women's Conference

October 07 - October 09

The NationBuilder Women’s Conference is a highly facilitated, highly curated experience about and for women who are leading. Our day together in London will not be a typical conference with long keynote speeches or panels. We will share our stories, build community, and dig deep with each other -- combining rigorous fact-based knowledge with the power of narrative wisdom.

The specifics

The conference will take place at The Apartment at the Hoxton in Shoreditch. The program starts promptly at 9:00am (registration begins at 8:30am) on Saturday the 24th and we will end at 6:30pm. The experience stacks on top of itself, so trust us, you won't want to miss a minute.

What can you expect?

As our past participants have said, it's kind of hard to put what the conference is like into words. So we asked them to share just one that summed up their experience, and this is what they said: nourishing, inspiring, activating, grounding, transformational, life-altering, bolstering, invigorating, and extraordinary.

So, how do you know if this is right for you?

If you have a deep yearning to talk about the things that matter - the nuanced and complex and deep issues that never get talked about anywhere else, this is your space.

If you care, more than you can put into words, about women and leadership and how we make it possible so all women (and all people) can lead - this is your classroom.

If you want to feel deeply connected with people you’d never normally speak to - this is your community.

We can’t wait to be with you.

What Can We Learn from Online Movements?

October 23

We are excited to invite you to join us Monday 23rd October at 12:00pm for a panel lunch and networking event we are organising with our friends and partners at Beekeeper Group.

The political landscapes on both sides of the Atlantic have seen tremendous changes over the past several years with the rise of online movements and their impact at the ballot box and influence over legislators, political campaigns and decision-makers. These groups have used digital tools, social media and new tactics to harness the passion of their supporters and channel it towards collective action.

Our session will discuss what we can learn from these movements and how we can leverage the best of their communications, tools and advocacy tactics for the advocacy campaigns we work on for organisations in Brussels. Whether you work for an NGOS, a trade association, a federation or a corporation this session is for you. 

A light lunch will be provided which will include some food and drinks for our guests.

Community Dinner with NationBuilder LA

November 04

Join us for an evening of community, ceremony and leadership at the home of the Cohen family in Northridge, CA. NationBuilder Cities is committed to teaching leadership best practices to fellow leaders in the community, and this month’s event introduces leadership and community-building through the family unit. As a family with six children and counting, the Cohens have cultivated a healing home for many members of their community. This November, they thought to bring NationBuilder’s leaders into a more intimate home setting and model their way of leading and holding space for community work. The evening will begin with a communal meal, followed by a community council in which the Cohen's will introduce the way they hold space. 

The Cohens will prepare traditional Middle Eastern dishes, and additionally please contact Ayelet for what food offering you can  bring (drinks, salads, etc.) so we can coordinate a meal for everyone. Vegetarian options will be available as well, but please let us know if you have any other dietary restrictions.
