DES MOINES, Iowa -- Ever wonder how Des Moines always finds itself on the nation's top ten best lists? Or manages to attract major events like the NCAA tournament and festivals? The Greater Des Moines Partnership is a driving force.
Tiffany Tauscheck is its Chief Strategy Officer. She's helping to put Des Moines on the map at an organization where women make up less than half of the executive leadership.
"It is incredibly important to have women at the table who are actively involved in driving change and impacting change for our future," she says.
Tauscheck, who's worked at The Partnership for close to four years, credits her success to the support of mentors both male and female. Her title makes her job extremely demanding. During the day she spends her time in meetings and at night she finds herself helping to represent Des Moines at various events. The long hours have helped her put life into perspective.
