Partner, Maslow Development Inc.

Memphis, Tennessee

Nora Jendoubi, a San Francisco native, was born and raised in a multicultural household, which
shaped her narrative moving forward. Growing up, she saw the contrast between affluence and
poverty as the daughter of a Tunisian father from an impoverished village and a French-born
mother from an upper-middle class Italian family. Nora’s background provided the basis for her
understanding of inequality and the impact ZIP codes have on socioeconomic mobility and
educational opportunities. As a way to disrupt systemic inequity, she channeled her efforts
towards schools and their surrounding ecosystems.

Nora studied International Relations and Economics at Stanford University, with a focus on the
intersection between economic development, design and innovation. She is a Bay Area Teach for
America alumna and Coro Fellow.
