Talia was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She attended Milken Community High School and Camp Ramah, grew up in an AIPAC/Israel advocacy home, and has a B.A. from New York University. A deep interest in community building for Jewish continuity, business innovation, and female leadership led to her current professional and personal endeavors. While at NYU, she co-founded the TAMID Chapter and is a founding board member of TAMID Professionals. She also co-established the Alumni Board for Milken to build a strong community of Jewish leaders. During and after college, Talia worked in the Global Innovation Group at Ipsos, an international market research firm, working closely with Ipsos OTX CEO Shelley Zalis to incubate "The Girls' Lounge (now known as The FQ Lounge)." A destination at global conferences for women to network and activate change, The FQ Lounge has built a powerful international community of 17,000+ female leaders. Talia later joined Zalis to launch The Female Quotient, which acquired The FQ Lounge, to advance gender equality. Today, Talia serves as President, overseeing The FQ Lounge, including client partnerships with 50+ Fortune 500 companies, and developing innovative equality-focused programming for c-suite executives. Talia has been instrumental in building the first and largest community of female leaders at global conferences such as The World Economic Forum, Cannes Lions, SXSW, and CES. She travels extensively, manages a multi-talented team, and collaborates daily with industry leaders at companies including Google, Facebook, NBCUniversal, Spotify, Unilever, and JPMorgan Chase.
