Private sector social impact leadership survey

Leaders who bring confidence, creativity, and conviction to their work are arguably the most important ingredient to generating social impact. Often behind the scenes, these individuals play key roles in elevating and executing the social and environmental priorities of their organizations — priorities that are increasingly imperative for the private sector. In August 2022, NationSwell launched a survey specifically for private sector social impact leaders. Our analysis of those survey results reveals the opinions and truths held by social impact leaders in the U.S., all in service of advancing collective knowledge about these essential roles.
