    DeVon Douglass

    Chief Resilience Officer, City of Tulsa

    DeVon Douglass is the Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Tulsa and seeks to change systems wherever she goes. As an AmeriCorps VISTA, she focused on how communities can best help marginalized youth realize their own agency. Following her VISTA service, Douglass returned to Tulsa to work for the Oklahoma Policy Institute—a non-partisan, budget & tax policy think tank—where she galvanized Oklahomans around issues of economic opportunity, racial equity, and asset building. Now, as the Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Tulsa, she works to strengthen the social fabric of her city.
