Changing the Game

… it's up to us to carry that work forward, to ensure that our daughters and granddaughters have no limits on their dreams, no obstacles to their achievements -- and that they have opportunities their mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers never dreamed of.

- President Barack Obama

March 2009

Long before, Raye Mitchell, CEO and Foudner of the New Reality Foundation, Inc met and was befriended by Presodent Obama at Harvard Law School, Raye had the dream of giving back to her community and to help women and girls of color thrive as leaders.We work to spark, contribute to and grow a global Culture of Inclusion for women and girls of color.  Our focus is positive as we envision equality for women and girls of color in the on-going struggle for gender and race equability and inclusion. We see a new generation of diverse global leaders at the leadership table. Our purpose is to prepare women and girls of color to earn and claim a seat as global leaders. We will be prepared to lead forward.


Through our work, we invest in emerging trends, innovation and technology to discover new ways to meet the unmet national and global challenges of investing in women and girls as the next generation of global leaders. We investigate novel approaches within and well beyond the field of leadership, and seek new relationships and fresh thinking that may accelerate progress.


We focus on four (4) primary focus areas: educational excellence, leadership, advancing health & wealth, and improving images of women and girls in media and entertainment.  


Our unique signature programs service the full sector of "g.u.r.l.s." leadership training needs from young girls to executive women in leadership. Click each icon to discover more about each program.
