Taylor Kennedy, Senior Program Manager


Taylor Kennedy is a Senior Program Manager in RESOLVE’s Washington, D.C., office, where she focuses primarily on natural resource supply chains, including company-community relationships; indigenous rights and free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC); artisanal mining; supply chain due diligence processes; renewable energy; gender equity; and sustainable development. She works domestically and internationally supporting collaborative decision-making and research, designing and implementing stakeholder consultation, and providing training on conflict mitigation and community engagement. 

Before joining RESOLVE, Taylor worked at Dutko Worldwide, where she provided research, policy, and other support for their Sustainability and Housing practices. Now, at RESOLVE, Taylor supports the scaling and uptake of self-sustaining solutions and good practices that enable progressive improvement across all sectors, increasing environmental and social benefits from the use and conservation of natural resources.

Key Accomplishments

Co-developed a conflict resolution and stakeholder engagement training curriculum for employees of large-scale extractives projects. Delivered the training on four continents.

Supported the development of a widely consulted and globally applicable “Code of Risk mitigation for ASM engaging in Formal Trade” (CRAFT) to clearly demonstrate artisanal gold supply chains’ conformity with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and to establish criteria for progressive risk reduction and improved environmental and social practices.
