Danielle Taylor, MIP (she/her)

Chief of Staff

Danielle Taylor is a global community development specialist who has spent her career pursuing work that challenged and altered systems of discrimination. She has helped communities and teams develop processes to reflect on their norms and policies, led transformative programs that supported groups in understanding the value of diversity and inclusion, and guided processes for changing beliefs and behaviors so that non-majority people could receive equitable access to the resources they needed to meaningfully contribute to their communities and workplaces. Her work has been featured in numerous international publications and media outlets including Nasdaq, Runners World UK Magazine, and AllAfrica.com, and she regularly serves as a guest lecturer on unconscious bias and the limitations of privilege at colleges and universities.

Danielle has led high-stakes international diversity and inclusion initiatives with respected global development agencies including The Carter Center, the General Board of Global Ministries, and the Girls Gotta Run Foundation. Most recently, she founded and led Òman Baako, a non-profit organization that works to build stronger, more equitable communities across Africa and the African diaspora. In her current capacity as TMI Consulting Inc.’s Chief of Staff, Danielle oversees strategic business initiatives from development through successful execution. Danielle holds a Bachelor of Arts from Louisiana State University and a Master of International Policy from the University of Georgia.

"Danielle and I have worked together on projects within the U.S. and in Africa. She is well-connected and knows who to talk to get things done. She moves with ease between the worlds of logistics and programming -- she can both organize a conference for 100 people and design content for workshops or training sessions. Danielle is passionate about helping to create opportunities for all".
