Tanya PalusoTanya Paluso

Chief Experience Officer of Tribal Truth

Tanya is the founder and CEO of Tribal Truth, an international organization that hosts local meetings, workshops and retreats for leadership and community development.  It started as a network for women entrepreneurs in 2010 and opened its doors to include men in January 2013.

By teaching what she calls “co-creative leadership” so leaders can collaborate to achieve their dreams, Tanya believes Tribal Truth can be a platform for sustainable social change as more women step into their power and partner with men to make a difference in the world.

The story begins, however, with Tanya’s gypsy spirit to travel the world. After living abroad in China, Japan, Spain and South America, she moved to New York City to begin her journey in personal development. It was there that Tanya discovered her passion for community building when she started a project to bring her colleagues at Thomson Financial together to mentor inner city girls. The project was so successful that she won the 2006 Community Champion award out of 15,000 employees and raised over $30,000 for her partner non-profit, Girls Inc.

After leaving corporate sales at Thomson to study at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she started the non-profit Play 4 Life, Inc. to bring nutrition into inner city schools, again bringing community together for fundraiser events such as karaoke and dodgeball tournaments.

When she moved back to San Diego in 2008, she started organizing small events for women to empower each other, which eventually morphed into Tribal Truth.

Tanya has a B.A. from UC Berkeley and studied at The Institute For Integrative Nutrition. She currently lives in Solana Beach, CA.
