About us

We’re creating the best way to grow as people, in our own lives and careers, as well as in our communities and society.

Our founders

Edith Cooper

Edith has built her career on creating environments where people can perform to their potential, and she founded Medley to bring this expertise to a broader audience.  She is one of the nation's leading Black business executives, having spent 30 years on Wall Street. Most recently, she was a Partner, Executive Vice President, and the Head of Human Capital Management at Goldman Sachs.

In addition to her role as Co-Founder of Medley, she serves on several public company boards, including Amazon, PepsiCo, EQT Partners, and nonprofit boards such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Jordan Taylor

Jordan’s purpose is to create teams and groups where people can be their true selves. She co-founded Medley because throughout her life, she’s felt the power that comes from being part of a team, and felt the void when it’s missing.

Prior to founding Medley, Jordan worked in media as Chief of Staff at Mic and was a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group. She received her AB from Harvard College and her MBA from Harvard Business School, where she was a Baker Scholar.
