Culture Change Project: Findings and Methods Report (Spring 2023)

Comprehensive findings report (Spring 2023): how are Americans' mindsets shifting, and how have things changed since last year?
April 24, 2023

Since the spring of 2020, FrameWorks has been conducting qualitative and quantitative research to track shifts in cultural mindsets and working with partners to understand implications for those working for progressive, systems-level change.

This report is the second comprehensive report on our research findings, coming after 2.5 years of deep investigation. The findings presented in this report build upon our previous findings, and are based on a combination of focus groups, in-depth interviews, and a first-of-its-kind nationally representative survey. The first comprehensive research report, released in June 2022, can be found here.

Thus far, our research is showing that the previous gains we saw in systemic thinking (compared to individualistic thinking) may be leveling off—but people are still generally thinking more systemically than they were before the COVID-19 pandemic and the widespread racial justice uprisings of 2020. Check out the report for more.
