Advance health equity and innovation through greater diversity in healthcare leadership

Greater representation of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and female voices in leadership will drive more inclusive and equitable institutional priorities. Founded in 2021 by Ron Mitchell, Humanity Health offers a suite of services that enable our partners to identify, engage, recruit and develop diverse talent in the healthcare and life sciences ecosystem. 

Services include:

– Retained Search: Using proprietary screening technology to ensure delivery of qualified, diverse candidate slates

– Pipeline Engagement: Engage with high-potential, diverse candidates earlier in the process in order to build authentic, longer-term relationships

– Leadership Development: Solutions for middle and senior management with a focus on developing more inclusive leadership styles

– Employment Branding: Build an authentic and inclusive brand that resonates with diverse candidates you are seeking to hire

The Humanity Talent Network

Humanity Health will use the new funding to expand its base of C-Suite and executive-level leaders who are members in the Humanity Talent Network (HTN), a private membership community of leaders who identify as women and/or people of color. Through HTN, each member is matched with their own executive career strategist and delivered opportunities such as board positions, executive roles and investor introductions that are personalized to their expertise and preferences. Members are also invited to join Collectives, curated small group forums of subject matter experts engaging around career advancement, thought leadership, mentorship and collaboration. HTN is powered by native mobile applications developed by the company. Humanity Health plans to use the latest round of funding to help companies across the healthcare and life sciences industries connect with highly qualified and talented women and people of color for leadership positions.

The Humanity Talent Network is currently accepting applications for members. Interested members can apply here. Companies interested in partnering with Humanity Health are welcome to contact the company here.
