DRIVEN BY PURPOSE
Robin Wright-Pierce launched The Wright Institute for Transformative Change because she believes that more is possible for us, for our pursuit of freedom and justice, and for our world.

WE ELEVATE IMPACT
We cultivate wise and courageous leaders. We create transformative experiences that equip them with the sills and tools necessary to take value-aligned action that advances bold change.
We advance racially just outcomes by better integrating racial justice into the work of creating change. We work with leaders to refine and strengthen their initiatives.
We grow people power and elevate political strategy. We train movement builders, facilitate coalitional cohesion, and help develop winning political and organizing strategies.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
We take a holistic approach to transformative change that honors the complexity of individuals, groups and systems. We travel alongside partners integrating four key focus areas to deepen impact and advance racial equity in our society.
