What We Do

Mission

We help all stakeholders in a company to understand and successfully address systemic issues that make it hard for them to retain and maximise the potential of racial and ethnic minority professionals.

TNON

The Network of Networks

Developed in 2011 as an early supporter of the employee networks space, TNON began offering a targeted support and accountability group to those navigating equity work. Today, the company works across geographic boundaries with FTSE organisations, supporting all parts of the corporate ecosystem including the Board, C-Suite, Allies, Employee Network Leaders, DEI, HR and Talent Development Professionals to implement solutions to drive positive culture change.

Our Approach

TNON’s work is built on the idea that the advancement of ethnic minority professionals is not created by ‘fixing’ ethnic minority individuals, but by turning the working world of companies into inclusive environments where all individuals can succeed. ‘Training’ an ethnic minority individual and returning them to an unsupportive context, where barriers persist and the conditions of inclusiveness are poorly understood, is not an effective strategy for race equity. To advance ethnic minority professionals, we have to shape the cultures and contexts of workplaces to support that advancement. For this reason, TNON looks at organisations as interconnected ecosystems and works with the different parts of the ecosystem to ensure they are aligned in their goals and practices in service of race equity. Leveraging our strategic partnerships with 30% Club, BusinessLDN, Delta Alpha Psi (Delta), Diversio, Portfolio Institutional and Board Intelligence, TNON works with all parts of the ecosystem including the Board, C-Suite, Allies, Employee Network Leaders, DEI, HR and Talent Development Professionals to implement solutions to drive positive culture change.
