T. Morgan

Co-founder & CEO | GirlTrek

T. Morgan Dixon is CEO of GirlTrek, the largest health movement in America for Black women. Dixon co-founded GirlTrek with a college friend, Vanessa Garrison, after the two women became accountability buddies for taking daily 30-minute walks.

Today, GirlTrek is a movement with more than 1 million members who use walking as a practical first step to inspire healthy living and healthier communities. GirlTrek is a campaign to heal intergenerational trauma, fight systemic racism, and transform Black lives. The simple solution of a walking community, Dixon says, is both “radically powerful and transformational for the health crisis at large.”

In addition to serving as GirlTrek’s CEO, Dixon co-hosts the podcast, Black History Bootcamp — which has nearly 2 million downloads. She has been awarded fellowships by Echoing Green, Ashoka, and the Aspen Institute, has given two TED Talks with Garrison, and is a visiting innovator at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. She currently works from West Africa, in Ghana, uniting women and girls worldwide for health justice.
