Dominique Taylor (B'00)

Axios

Senior Vice President, Culture and Human Resources

Dominique is the SVP of HR and Culture at Axios, a new media company delivering vital, trustworthy news and analysis in the most efficient, illuminating and shareable ways possible. She believes culture and diversity are key drivers of a company’s success, that both are set in the formative stages of a company's lifecycle and that HR can be a force for good. 

After graduating from Georgetown University, she spent the first half of her career as a consultant focused on Workforce Management before making the leap to work “in house” when she joined EverFi, a DC-based Ed Tech company. At EverFi she built out the Talent and Culture function as the company grew from 75 people to over 400, raised a Series C, acquired another company and won a myriad of awards ranging from DC’s Coolest Companies to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work. She then joined 1776 for the opportunity to work with startups and entrepreneurs around the world to inform their culture and diversity strategies at a critical juncture in their company’s lifecycle.

When Dominique is not designing and implementing culture and diversity initiatives, she can be found trying to bring order to the approximately 578,962 Legos her three sons have accumulated in her house. Success has eluded her.
