Inclusion Now

Hello Neighbour,

We have an opportunity as marketers, journalists and content creators to shape what we see online everyday. Being born Cantonese in Richmond, B.C. surrounded by a wide variety of minorities made me realize very early on that what we see on our screens isn’t what we see in our everyday lives.

I have to admit that even through all my experience at CCCJ (now known as Canadian Centre for Diversity) helping children explore various religious cultures, as well as CBC Television helping integrate underrepresented segments into our workforce, and finally founding the XYBOOM Intergenerational conference, I still didn’t truly realize the importance of diversity and inclusion.

It was as if life kept handing me these opportunities and I just wasn’t getting the message.

But all of my history came flooding back to me when I had my first child. The impact that representation has on confidence, mental health and education is often overlooked, and it forced me to realize that as a marketer, if I’m not part of the solution, then I am part of the problem.

I want all children to see themselves represented, to not feel alone in their uniqueness, and to be proud of who they are. Not only in the colour of their skin, but their complex intersection in a modern day reality.

So, I’d like to welcome you to AndHumanity, an agency built with diversity, inclusion — and most importantly — humanity at its core. We live the principles and we create authentic allyship with complex, intersectional communities.

I look forward to meeting you.

Tammy Tsang
AndHumanity co-founder

Inclusive Marketing

for People-first brands

We Identify where exclusion or underrepresentation exists in your communications and service offerings, work to close these gaps by elevating these marginalized voices and advocating for change.

We do this through thoughtfully aligning brand values with communications, building authentic allyships, and creating relevant content which deepens customer loyalty and influences positive social change.

advocacy

authentic representation

Elevating underrepresented voices and diverse role models through thoughtful and authentic stories. These initiatives aim to educate the public and to support a sense of belonging for all.

allyship

REAL partnerships

Building brand loyalty through allyship is less about telling your diverse customer base about what they want, and more about listening to what they’re saying. Our goal is to make sure those voices are heard and included in every step of the process.

"For better or worse, few people have more influence on public opinion than marketers. Tammy Tsang took that to heart when she launched Vancouver-based AndHumanity with her brother, Matthew Tsang, last year. The inclusive marketing and communications agency helps a wide variety of brands build customer loyalty and drive positive social change, by elevating and authentically connecting with underrepresented groups."

"After Tammy Tsang gave birth to her first child two years ago, her maternity leave was, she describes, a period when “time stopped,” allowing her to reflect and reevaluate her role as an advertising and communications agency owner. A natural-born leader, maverick entrepreneur and seasoned brand strategist, Tsang “always defined [her] real job as a person as advocating for the other.” But even with a long history working in the diversity and inclusion space — teaming with the Canadian Centre for Diversity helping youth explore various religious cultures, working with CBC Television to help integrate underrepresented segments into the workforce, and founding the XYBOOM Intergenerational conference — Tsang admits, “I was actually part of the problem. Not part of the solution.”"

"Several years ago, Tammy Tsang discovered there was little conversation in the industry about the concept of Diversity and Inclusion and how it overlapped with Marketing & Communications. JEDI work was seen primarily as an HR obligation, and for many organizations, only a tertiary obligation at that time."

MODO
"Our first video, in what will become a series of many, describes Modo’s journey to-date: the why, what and how. We begin by looking at the Member Research, undertaken with the help of consultant Majid Khoury, and AndHumanity’s diversity and inclusive marketing agency, to introduce our DEI work and goals across our co-op. Hear how these local experts and a few folks on our leadership team, talk in depth about our motivation to remove barriers and become more inclusive, the connection to our purpose and the steps we are taking in this process. There were a few surprises and challenges along the way, but without a doubt, we learned a lot through this process and hope you will too."
