StartingBloc is a global community of leaders committed to an equitable, collaborative, thriving world.  

Through our Fellowship program, we convene, support, and grow leaders from high-potential to high-impact. As a result of StartingBloc, Fellows report growth in their professional networks, greater clarity of purpose, and transitioning into leadership positions.



StartingBloc is a gem of inspiration without ego, positivity without ignorance, and community in its most authentic form.

The StartingBloc Fellowship

The Fellowship begins by attending our 5-day leadership Institute. During the Institute, you learn hard skills, ask big questions, and create community with 75-100 of your peers. And the Institute is just the entry-point into a lifelong Fellowship. StartingBloc Fellows participate in regional chapters and topical affinity groups, put on Fellows-only events, and access our pro-bono coaching program.

Over the past 15 years, our programs have impacted over 2,800 change leaders in 56 countries around the world.

Get involved.
