About Us

The Humanity Group, Inc


THG founded in July 2017 initially focused on Hospitality staffing. In October 2018 rebranding with a focus on "Age-related assumptions" in the workplace and changing the mindset that people aren't vested in their careers after a certain age.

  • We believe in the synergy of combing value-added experience with successful companies - an irrefutable move toward future success.

Ageless Leadership Team

Lelia Hagood is the Chief Ageless Officer (CAO) of The Humanity Group.  The majority of her career was spent in Human Resources management positions in various industries such as Distribution, Hospitality, Retail & Transportation. However, she loved the hospitality industry the most. 

After her 4th time being laid off in July 2017, Lelia found herself not being able to bounce back so quickly.  The one thing that was different was her age along with embracing the silvers in her hair. While age discrimination is illegal, in practice it's difficult to prove.  


As in Lelia's case other women were starting to contact her for assistance in finding them employment as they were being forced out of their jobs. Many of the women hadn't ever experienced a reduction in workforce and invested a lot into their careers. All of the women 50 & above still have stamina, savvy and weren't looking to slow down.

Lelia's favorite quotes are:

 “You can have everything in life you want, if you just help other people get what they want.”

 - Zig Ziglar

"You can't use up creativity.  The more you use, the more you have."

  -Maya Angelou

Erika  Barnes-Ford, Ageless Consultant

 “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” 

 - Maya Angelou

 Affable and energetic, Erika is the type of person who comes to work early just because she can’t wait to get there.  Known for putting all of her energy into her projects.
