Diondraya Taylor, Ph.D.

CEO & Founder of Mindset & Milestones
Diondraya Taylor is an education Ph.D. from UCLA and the founder of Mindset & Milestones: a social enterprise focusing on entrepreneurship education for youth! As she fell in love with the startup space through her role with different startups, she recognized entrepreneurship as an amazing tool to encourage innovation, goal setting, and boldness in youth- especially young girls at a time when gender inequity is still a reality. In her research, she focuses on risk-taking for young women in STEM and tries to understand their engagement in relation to the identities they hold. Between her business and her research, she is committed to the preparation of youth for the future and the advancement of women and girls in society.

We create materials to help teachers provide youth with entrepreneurial skills! Our curriculum not only empowers youth but also gives educators the tools to lead entrepreneurial experiences in their own programs, classrooms, and more.
