What We Do
The New Humanity Initiative’s (TNHI) commitment is the pursuit of the advancement of racial equity, access, inclusion and belonging. It is an explicit outcomes-based approach that aligns our organization’s vision, mission, values and ethos in every aspect of our work. Through our Seven- Pillar Framework™ which forms the core of how we work, it is integral to the transformative engagement we do, that is interwoven into our programmes and partnerships on behalf of the communities we serve.
The New Humanity Initiative’s R.A.C.E.S. Model™ for Change builds on a shared commitment for both individuals and organizations to thrive in their communities by building consensus on equitable outcomes and lasting transformation that centers our humanity – and the roles we play in everyday life – personal, professional and social. Through the exploration and examination of each stage of the model, it helps us to understand how our differences impact and enrich the communities we live, play and work.

Our work in advancing and promoting racial equity, access, inclusion and belonging is fostered through stakeholders perspectives and participation to reshape, expand and transform cultural norms, build awareness and social understanding through various organization-wide learning modalities, frameworks and opportunities like listening circles, workshops, conferences, executive roundtables, activities and events that amplify our humanity and celebrate our diversity.
The goals are purpose-fueled to strengthen our mission focused work, curate understanding, uncover gaps and address in a systematic and comprehensive way – engendering equity, access, inclusion and belonging for BIPOC communities, our allies and partners to address the unconscious bias and racism reifies the status quo.
Our work is situated in the journey every individual and organization takes, to give context, deeper understanding and meaning to the collective experiences which is essential to making the organization’s commitment to real change, real impact and transformational progress to advance racial equity in our organizations and communities.
