Tali GolanDirector, Philanthropy and Inclusion at TripAdvisor


From her first international flight at the age of one, Tali’s fate was to become a world traveler, connecting people and communities. Since then, she has worked her way around the globe from Laos, to Germany, to Peru, to Spain, and has lived and worked in Atlanta, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Israel, North Carolina, Bangkok and Boston, immersing herself in local and international cultures.

Given her wanderlust, Tali considers it fate to be leading global citizenship at the world’s largest travel site. She oversees TripAdvisor’s global philanthropic, volunteerism, and diversity and inclusion strategies and initiatives. Prior to landing in the professional travel world, she spent a number of years at Boston’s Cause Consulting, where she helped corporate clients craft social responsibility strategies, forge public and private partnerships, and develop employee volunteer and engagement programs. Tali began her career in the nonprofit and private foundation worlds, developing and promoting meaningful and empowering programs for young adults around community building, volunteerism, social activism, cross-cultural awareness and leadership development. Tali earned an M.B.A. from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and a B.A. in International Relations from Stanford University.

Tali’s favorite travel destination is Tel Aviv, Israel.
