The Human Library with Beverly Tarulli

Third Act with Liz Tinkham

Beverly Tarulli: The Human Library

This episode of The Third Act Podcast features Beverly Tarulli, the Human Library. This moniker is derived from her eternal passion for learning, guiding her initial studies at Franklin & Marshall that later progressed to earning her PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

Beverly’s high academic performance and drive landed her a job at Bell South, which is now AT&T, developing and validating tests to hire frontline workers. Her role at PepsiCo evolved over her fourteen year career, leading efforts in organization and talent development, global human resources, and eventually becoming the Vice President of Human Capital Strategy & Advanced Workforce Analytics. While working at PepsiCo, she was also a part-time faculty member at Columbia University. Prior to PepsiCo, Beverly worked at Accenture where she helped launch their Human Capital Practice. Now, as a newly appointed clinical assistant professor at NYU School of Professional Studies, Beverly specializes in human capital and human capital analytics.

Beverly prioritized her passion for people as truly human capital in every career move she made, coming full circle back to academia at NYU..
