Development works here because great people work here. We’re excited to introduce you to our team.


Meet Taylor Jack, Program Manager for the East and Southern Africa Region at Chemonics. In addition to supporting Chemonics’ projects in Uganda and Zimbabwe and being a founding member of ChemONYX, our employee resource group dedicated to cultivating Black leaders, Taylor recently co-authored a book: The Young Black Leader’s Guide to a Successful Career in International Affairs: What the Giants Want You to Know. In this video, Taylor discusses her path to writing the book, how trips to Brazil and D.C. in her youth were the foundations of her career in International Development, and how a famous quote from late U.S. congressman John Lewis inspires her to use her voice for good.
