Tiffany C. Taylor currently serves as the inaugural Chief People and Impact Officer at GSV Ventures. Prior to joining the GSV team, Taylor spent 11 years at Teach For America as a national Vice President and Deputy Chief People Officer as well as Executive Director of the Detroit region. After graduating from University of Michigan in 2004, Tiffany worked as a sixth-grade special education teacher and school leader in Philadelphia. She then deepened her understanding of issues affecting underrepresented communities through her work as an education policy consultant and affordable housing developer. Supporting various equity-minded organizations, including most recently an appointment by Governor Whitmer as Commissioner of Huron-Clinton Metroparks and serving on the board of directors of the Joyce Ivy Foundation, the AI Education Project, Black Family Development Training Institute, and Boys Hope Girls Hope of Detroit, Taylor uses her voice and action to redefine education as a means to liberation. A builder and convener committed to excellence in education and creating the conditions that empower thriving spaces and communities, Taylor believes in our collective responsibility to move toward a world of unlimited opportunity and equitable access defined not for our children, but by them.
