Einhorn Collaborative is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to addressing America’s growing crisis of connection.

We believe that addressing America’s crisis of connection is not only critically urgent, but possible — and already underway in communities across our country.

We believe the prevailing narratives of distrust and division are not only flawed, but reversible. 

We believe that when we sit down to listen, learn, and share different perspectives, we unlock entirely new ways of seeing ourselves, each other, and the needs and values we share.  

That’s why Einhorn Collaborative is advancing the science and practice of empathy, mutual understanding, and relationship building — so we can rediscover our common humanity and solve our nation’s greatest challenges together.

Inspired by a prism, our brand design represents the transformative power of empathy and collaboration. When we move from welcoming one perspective to many, we enter a world that’s multi-dimensional and full of prismatic color, allowing us to see humanity in a new light.

Our Commitment: Building a Culture of Connection and Belonging in America

At Einhorn Collaborative, we are committed to working with a broad coalition of partners and peers to help shape a shared future for our country — one that elevates belonging, not othering; bridging, not breaking; and connection, not isolation.


We recognize that historic and current forms of dehumanization — based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, indigeneity, national origin, and ability — have shaped the power, policies, and systems in which we seek to advance social change. We commit to embrace efforts in our own organization, our collaboratives, and in our fields of practice that help us recognize, reveal, and dismantle all forms of “othering” and to intentionally reach out and partner with historically excluded and marginalized groups.

While our team brings different backgrounds and perspectives, no small team like ours can fully represent the rich diversity of our country. We commit to push ourselves to be students of our nation’s history, reflect on our 

hidden biases, and routinely engage with those whose perspectives are different from our own, across every dimension, to help inform, shape, and guide our work and our worldview. 


At the same time, our commitment to building a culture of true belonging means that we are unwilling to collaborate with people and organizations whose work is grounded in the dehumanization or rejection of entire groups simply because of what they look like, whom they love, how they pray, or where they’re from.

As individuals and collectively, we know there is a long way to go, and we will likely get things wrong. We commit to holding ourselves and each other accountable by regularly examining our contributions to social change efforts — personal, organizational, and systemic — in service of creating a country where all of us feel seen, heard, and valued: a culture of true belonging.
