YOUnify is a nonprofit project. Our mission is twofold. We work to (1) reduce polarization and cultural divisions of all kinds in service of (2) accelerating progress on solutions to the key challenges of our time.
We take a cross-sector approach, uniting people from business, philanthropy, impact investing, non-profits, government, the interfaith/inter-belief community, the arts and entertainment community, media and journalism, the grassroots and more.
There are five components to our program:
(1) convening through an in-person annual Summit & Festival, year-round online programming and offline events
(2) year-round leadership program for leaders from each sector
(3) year-round place-based grassroots program.
(4) solutions labs
(5) capacity building for other organizations
We take an intersectional approach to all of our work that centers the people most proximate to the challenges we see to solve. The JODIE framework (Justice,Opportunity, Diversity, Inclusion, Equity) is embedded in everything that we do.
