Leading for Kind and High-Functioning Democracies
We want to know more about the role that culture plays in supporting kind and high-functioning democracies. We offer research grants to document what is known--both historically and cross-culturally—about how culture can support democracy. We want to identify important cultural values, key norms, and policies and practices that enable democracy. We seek researchers who will conduct thorough literature reviews on the following topics. Insights from this research will be incorporated into a book, training and other culture change tools.

The six primary research areas are described in the following questions:

  • What do we know about deliberative and effective legislative cultures?
  • What do we know about kind and healthy civic cultures?
  • What are the characteristics of cultures that support citizen participation in the democratic process?
  • What are the characteristics of cultures that support effective government programs and agencies?
  • What are the characteristics of business cultures that support a kind and democratic society?
  • What are the characteristics of media cultures that support effective government programs and agencies?

Supporting Wellness Organizations with Their Client Groups and Members
We are working to expand our collaboration with organizations and companies in the wellness industry. Our goal is to make our culture change tools--including surveys, publications, action trackers, and training--available in existing wellness networks. We will build upon our current work with the Wellness Councils of America, the Health Enhancement Research Organization, and Redbrick Health. We are ready to adapt our culture tools to the needs of those organizations seeking to incorporate culture strategies into their product and service mix.
