Welcome to Berrett-Koehler Foundation!

The Berrett-Koehler Foundation was created to extend Berrett-Koehler Publishers’ mission of connecting people and ideas to create a world that works for all.

We aim to support the next generation of changemakers in creating a world that works for all by learning and putting into practice systems-changing ideas and methods that foster positive change in people’s lives, organizations and communities.

In our next chapter, we are initiating an Action-Learning Fellowship Program and a Berrett-Koehler Book Club! Our focus remains on supporting action-learning projects undertaken by emerging leaders, or the mission-driven organizations in which they work, that help them create collaborative environments, deep dialogue and whole systems change that shift the underlying beliefs, practices, and structures that keep generating the same cycles of problems. We work inter-generationally, engaging in mutual learning across ages and re-weaving the generational fabric as we empower the next generation of change-makers.

Interested leaders and organizations can take a look at Our Programs for more information on our new programs and some insight into possible ways we can support you!


Here’s what our Board has to say about how they see the work of BK Foundation…

“A vibrant hub – a force that connects people, ideas, and opportunities.”

“Supports others to experience a step towards beloved community, unexpected insights and concrete ideas and resources to support people’s work.”

“Bring together allies, divergent thinking, cross-generational and cross-sector.”
