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.

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.

Each of Tanenbaum's programs have a theory of change with indicators to help guide our efforts. These indicators vary by program, but include metrics such as the number of trainings we give and the number of people we train and the number of people who are impacted by our trainees. We also keep track of how may times are resources are downloaded and opened. We give evaluations before and after trainings and seek feedback from people who have look at our curriculum and materials. We have also used focus groups to evaluate the impact of our training and resources and and gauge our progress towards our ultimate goal.

We have expanded our Corporate Membership program to include 14 new members including Target, GM and Bloomberg. In total, our Workplace Program reaches 34 corporations. We hosted the 2nd annual Corporate Religious Diversity Leadership Summit, which successfully hosted forty companies. In 2017, Our workplace consultations and trainings covered a range of workplace issues, including Islamophobia at work, and questioning an employee’s right to display the Confederate flag. In our Health Care program, we trained over 1,600 NYC Health and Hospitals staff and developed two e-learning modules. 190 students at the Columbia School of Nursing received religio-cultural competence training. In 2018 we're launching a new Hospital Membership Program. We're promoting our 'Religions in my Neighborhood' education materials for the classroom. We selected two new Peacemakers in Action, bringing our Peacemakers in Action Network to 28 living members. We're disseminating our Combating Extremism materials.
