Taylor Chapman provides programmatic and administrative support to MRBF’s network officers, and guidance to current and potential grantee partners.
Before joining the Foundation, Chapman served as a communications and marketing graduate assistant in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She also worked in the department's library as an office assistant. Chapman completed an internship at Greensboro’s New Arrivals Institute, an organization helping immigrants and refugees transition into the community. She also served as program director and communications coordinator for the Full Circles Foundation in Raleigh, which advocates for empowerment for women and girls.
Chapman was the first person in her family to attend college, let alone graduate school. She earned Master and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Women’s and Gender Studies at UNCG. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in English. In addition to gender and social justice issues, Chapman loves to write about style; she was featured in a book about plus-size representation in fashion.
