Commitment to Diversity

From the very beginnings of the Human Gathering, we have been committed to fostering a diverse environment. Our culture is a safe place to truly be yourself, without fear of judgment. We see diversity as a mindset and reality that welcomes everyone to come to the table and support each other.

Creating and maintaining this true diversity is an ongoing mission that our Founders and team take very seriously. Since the beginning, half of our Members have been women.

Furthermore, our Founders are close friends with the families of the most well known civil rights leaders in history. The Human Gathering is the only private network in the world that works directly with these families to form our commitment to diversity: Frederick Douglass, Rosa Parks, Booker T. Washington and several others. 

We show our commitment through our actions, as well as our words. In 2021, the Human Gathering was responsible for bringing together Rodney King’s family and George Floyd’s family for the first time in history – at The Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC.

This historic moment in time was covered extensively by TIME Magazine and was broadcast on National Television on Good Morning America.

The work and commitment continues, as we drive forward our “Descendants Initiative”: Bringing together the descendants of the most iconic civil rights leaders in history, for the first time in history. All Human Gathering Members have the opportunity to participate and collaborate in creating yet another historic moment in time, currently slated for Black History Month in 2024.

All Human Gathering Members are dedicated to celebrating the diversity amongst our Membership.
