Over the course of 2021 and into 2022, Global Zero worked with a diverse group of co-conspirators to develop a radical new organizational structure and strategy oriented around influencing policy in lasting ways.

Global Zero’s organizational model is a new, radically reimagined way of working for powerful impact where diversity, belonging, justice, and a campaign strategy-centered approach seamlessly intertwine. Our structure is a living one, oriented around the change we want to see, not the types of work we do — and designed to put the right decision-makers in the appropriate places so they can be strategic and effective based on the needs of any given moment. 

We are guided by our Living Agreements, which serve as Global Zero’s constitution and outlines everything from our mission, vision, and values, to organizational roles, responsibilities, decision-making processes, and more. 

This piece by Global Zero’s managing partner, Derek Johnson, outlines the history, process, and current status of our model. We will be providing more detailed information once our radical transparency hub comes online.
