Download Tiye Sherrod’s NACC Speakers Bureau Profile
Tiye Sherrod was born and raised in one of the most challenging neighborhoods in the City of Chicago. After much hard work and perseverance, she went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to pursue a degree in Economics. While studying to receive her degree, she spent a great deal of time taking classes with the Intergroup Relations Program (IGR) that Michigan offers undergraduate students. After participating in a race dialogue, Tiye fell in love with the program and the cultural awakening it provided for her personally. In 2007, she took on the challenge of being a dialogue facilitator and completed extensive training in Michigan’s IGR Program. She went on to teach her first intergroup dialogue class on gender norms and stereotypes that hosted several other undergraduate students. Since her time at Michigan, Tiye has worked to promote racial equity by presenting her signature Curiosity, Humility, and Empathy dialogue method at conferences and with clients in her private practice. She is currently a doctoral student in diversity and inclusion at The University of Illinois.
