2020 Keynote Speaker

Marc Taylor

Public Strategies

In 2015 Marc Taylor joined It’s My Community Initiative (IMCI) as the director for TRUE Dads, a federally funded innovative responsible fatherhood program based in Oklahoma City. IMCI had just received the grant award and Taylor’s challenge was to build the TRUE Dads program from the ground up. In just over four years, the program has served more than 2,000 fathers and their co-parents and is currently in the final stages of a rigorous Random Control Trial conducted by the University of California, Berkeley. The early analysis of the program has been promising, with significant impacts across multiple domains.

In his new role overseeing all Public Strategies family strengthening programs, Taylor has been applying the successes and lessons learned from the TRUE Dads program and identifying new ways to improve outcomes for vulnerable families.
