How we work

We work with leaders, nonprofit organizations, and movement networks that see themselves as vehicles for social change and support them through training, peer networkscoaching, and leadership programs. 

We believe that a liberated future free of oppression begins with our own personal liberation and practicing equity with each other—and we strive to build systems that reflect that belief.

That doesn't mean we don't often fall short of that goal! We are constantly learning and struggling together and with each other, and we are far from perfect.

Some of the things that we are excitedly growing into (and imperfectly navigating through) in the next chapter of our organization are: developing a Pro-Black stance, deepening our political education, figuring out what our hybrid model of teaching (online and in-person!) will look like, developing a collective culture and system around conflict resolution, and continuing to develop pathways for internal promotions. It's a time for amibitious growth and transformation, and we're excited about bringing on folks who want to show up and make meaningful contributions to our evolution! 

Working at CompassPoint Includes a Commitment to... 

Engagement in contributing to healthy team dynamics - developing a common vision, working collaboratively with clear roles, and tending to relationships; willingness to grapple and engage in (not retreat from) generative conflict.

Agility - learning from experience and applying that learning successfully in new situations

Shared responsibility - critiquing and contributing (not only one or the other) toward our ongoing evolution as an organization

Collaborative contributioncontribute to the organization as a whole; willingness and curiosity for exploring and growing into varied areas of work

Transformative relationships - actively building relationships based on care and mutual flourishing 


Our current structure

​Our leadership structure is grounded in principles of distributed power and practicing deep democracy. As we grow, we are looking for team members who are eager to play an active role in evolving that structure with us

Our structure feels and looks different from traditional top-down management. We lean in the direction of self-management principles where everyone has increased ownership of their work.

Our aspiration for collective leadership reflects our respect for individual autonomy (empowering everyone to have agency and make decisions from their roles) while also centering belonging (being united in purpose, vision, and a sense of community). 

 

Working in circles

The structure we work in consists of several "circles" that steward key areas of our work. Our structure prioritizes self-management practices and distributed power. As a team member at CompassPoint, you won't report directly to a single direct supervisor or manager. Instead, you'll belong to one or more teams that help to define goals and move work forward. 

The executive leadership team (structured as a Co-Directorship) holds the big picture for the organization, coordinating and facilitating work across circles, aligning us toward a common vision, and ensuring that CompassPoint is values-driven, sustainable, and ultimately impactful
