The Social Transformation Project was a dynamic movement building effort that served progressive social change leaders from 2008 – 2022


In our early years, we developed tools to bring transformative leadership and organizational development practices to social change organizations and coalitions. We trained and connected hundreds of coaches, facilitators, and organizational consultants in the art of transformational consulting. This body of work is a part of STP and Rockwood Leadership Institute co-founder Robert Gass’ legacy.

Over time, we accompanied hundreds of the nation’s most eminent leaders as they reached for ways to meet the moment, collaborate across sectors, and create solutions at the scale of our collective challenges. We facilitated powerful networks and the development of relationships, shared analysis and emergent strategy at the intersections of gender, racial, economic, worker, and climate justice movements. This work was led by STP co-founder and Executive Director Jodie Tonita.
