Interests: Social entrepreneurship, cross-sector change
Born and raised in Israel, Tal’s passion is for social change and promoting entrepreneurship through focusing on the intersection between sectors, and that is what brought her to NYU. She is currently a second year student and Steinberg Fellow in the NYU Wagner/Skirball MPA-MA in Hebrew and Judaic Studies program. At Wagner, Tal is pursuing an MPA with a specialization in financial management and is on the Editorial Board of the Wagner Review, a student-run academic journal. After completing her BA in Political Science and East Asian Studies at Tel Aviv University, Tal worked at Hillel at Stanford University as part of Fellowship run by Hillel International and the Jewish Agency. Upon returning to Israel, Tal began working at Latet, an Israeli Humanitarian Aid Organization, as Director of Partnerships and Advocacy, and she is currently managing the founding of American Friends of Latet in the US. During her first year at NYU, Tal worked at the Taproot Foundation as Advisory Services Fellow, supporting corporate clients in partnering with nonprofits to deliver impactful pro-bono projects.
