In our latest episode of [Re]Builders, we spoke with the incredible Dr. Tiffany Manuel. She is the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Chair of Rebuilding Together's national board of directors, President and CEO of TheCaseMade, and author of 'CaseMade! 10 Powerful Leadership Principles that Win Hearts, Change Minds, and Grow Impact.' Known as Dr. T, she brings a powerhouse of insights and expertise to the table, with over 20 years of experience in the housing field.

Dr. T shares her journey with Rebuilding Together, revealing how a national staff member initially reached out to invite her onto the board five years ago, though she initially declined. However, destiny intervened when Caroline Blakely, former CEO of Rebuilding Together, extended another invitation about two and a half years ago, to which Dr. T eagerly accepted. 

Discover how Dr. T's passion for social change was ignited during her upbringing in Detroit, propelling her into a mission to revolutionize leadership for deep, lasting impact. She doesn't hold back as she discusses the critical role of research and data in shaping policies for better community outcomes, offering actionable advice for emerging leaders in community development.
