Tali Golan

Global Head of TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation


From her first international flight at the age of one, Tali’s fate was to become a world traveler connecting people and communities. Since then, Tali has worked her way around the globe from Laos to Germany to Peru to Spain, and has lived and worked in Atlanta, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Israel, North Carolina, Bangkok and Boston immersing herself in local and international cultures.

Given her wanderlust, Tali considers it fate to be leading the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation, the corporate philanthropic arm of the world’s largest travel site. Tali oversees TripAdvisor’s global philanthropic strategies and programs as well as employee volunteer initiatives throughout the company’s offices. Prior to landing in the professional travel world, she spent a number of years at Boston’s Cause Consulting, where she helped corporate clients craft social responsibility strategies, forge public/private partnerships, and develop employee volunteer and engagement programs.

Tali began her career in the nonprofit and private foundation worlds, developing and promoting meaningful and empowering programs for young adults around community building, volunteerism, social activism, cross-cultural awareness and leadership development.

Tali holds an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and a BA in International Relations from Stanford University.
