NABU: Taylor Jean-Jacques Is Appointed to NABU Global Board of Directors

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Taylor Jean-Jacques to the NABU Global Board of Directors. Taylor's rise in the corporate world is a testament to her extraordinary leadership and dedication to the tech and finance sectors. Currently, she serves as an investment professional at General Atlantic where she invests in and advises growth stage companies in the technology sector. Taylor's background in computer science at Princeton University and experience at Facebook, Fidelity Investments and J.P. Morgan, brings a wealth of knowledge to our Board to help shape the future of NABU.

Taylor began her journey with NABU as an intern during the summer of 2014, supporting the team with fundraising, coding, and partnerships with schools, publishers, tablet manufacturers and more. During her second summer, she spent time with the team in Haiti introducing the e-library product to schools across the region. It was then that her passion for our mission was ignited:

“During my time as an intern at NABU, I realized that through tech-enabled products and services, we can help solve the world's most important problems in a scalable and sustainable way. NABU is using the power of technology to help bridge the digital divide and bring literacy into the hands of those who need it most.”

Taylor’s family roots in Haiti also attracted her to NABU, as Haiti was one of NABU’s first program countries, where we began providing access to mother tongue books in 2013. Taylor has pride in her heritage and a deep commitment to giving back, not only to communities in Haiti, but worldwide. After interning at NABU and graduating from high school, Taylor attended Princeton University and studied computer science and psychology, a milestone celebrated by everyone on the NABU team at the time:

“We are delighted to have been a part of Taylor’s early career, and now to have her serve NABU as a Board Member is an amazing testament to her commitment to our mission. With her technical background and at the cutting edge of investing in and building technology businesses now, we are excited to shape the future of NABU together,” said NABU CEO Tanyella Allison.

We look forward to leveraging Taylor's unique skill set and experiences as we continue our mission to drive positive change through technology. Join us in welcoming Taylor Jean-Jacques to the NABU Global Board of Directors as we embark on this exciting new chapter together.
