Building BLocks for Change

The Building Movement Project’s Race to Lead research initiative revealed the need for nonprofit organizations to invest more effort in advancing race equity in the sector. Therefore, BMP created Building Blocks for Change (BB4C), as an assessment tool to help nonprofits foster more racially equitable workplaces. The BB4C framework equips organizations with the insights to understand their culture and build more aligned teams by assessing four categories—learning, leadership, conversation, and voice—that are fundamental for organizations engaging in race equity efforts.
