Mission Statement

We are a secular, non-sectarian nonprofit that promotes mutual respect with practical programs that bridge religious difference and combat prejudice in schools, workplaces, health care settings and areas of armed conflict.

Description

Tanenbaum designs trainings and educational resources to change the way people treat one another and to celebrate the richness of our country’s diversity. In all our work, Tanenbaum is inspired not only by The Golden Rule - to treat others as you would like to be treated - but also by the Platinum Rule - to treat others as they want to be treated.

At Tanenbaum, Education experts prepare educators to teach respect for religious diversity. The result? Kids learn that being different is normal and interesting, not something to be feared.

Our Health Care experts train doctors to respond to their patients’ religious needs. The result? Patients get better care because doctors address important traditions including diet and fasting, birth and death rituals, and prohibitions against transplants, transfusions or other treatments.

In global corporations, Workplace experts help companies counter prejudice at work and welcome talent from all beliefs to the office, from atheists to people of minority faiths. The result? Happier employees and more profitable workplaces.

Our Conflict Resolution experts empower international and multi-faith activists motivated by their religious beliefs to confront violence and pursue peace. The result? More effective peacebuilding in conflicts worldwide.
