Tiffany Yu


When I was an intern almost a decade ago, I was told, “It’s not about you, it’s about those who came before you and those who will come after you.” I would not have gotten to where I am without mentors. It is important for me to do the same for others. The best impact I can make in this world is through the successes of those who have touched me and my work.

We are proud to induct Tiffany Yu into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.

Tiffany Yu is the CEO & Founder of Diversability, an award-winning social enterprise to rebrand disability through the power of community and the Founder of the Awesome Foundation Disability Chapter, a monthly micro-grant for disability projects that has funded $19.5k to 20 projects in 5 countries. She also serves on the Leadership Committee to create the first disability cultural center in San Francisco.

Tiffany started her career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs, working on over $14 billion of announced transactions. Named one of the “100 most influential Asian Americans of 2017”, a “change maker to watch”, and one of “100 visionary leaders”, Tiffany has been featured in media outlets such as Marie Claire, the Guardian, and Forbes. She is a graduate of Georgetown University and is currently pursuing her Executive Master’s degree at the London School of Economics.
