*OVERVIEW* Throughout history, social and political movements have had a significant impact on the world– shaking and shaping our society. In recent years, new social movements have stunned the world with their ability to spawn conversations, shape politics, and serve as a conduit for change. Many believed such accomplishments and results were impossible. Leading an effective nonviolent struggle demands new ways of thinking and strong collaboration among many diverse groups. The *Leading Nonviolent Movements for Social Progress * executive program explores the conceptual frameworks for effective leadership through learning modules focused on building collaboration, strengthening the strategic capacity of leadership teams, tactical flexibility and innovation, and negotiation.
