Long before every member of Congress had a website, Tiffany Moore, now senior vice president at the Consumer Technology Association, developed one for her then-boss, Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan. That was in the 1990s, when the Detroit native had just moved to D.C. She brought with her a passion for technology, which had bloomed at a young age as she watched her mother make extra money through a desktop-publishing business, and which was well-suited to the tech boom of that era. 

More than two decades later, Moore’s early exposure to the power of technology has motivated her to push for inclusion in the industry. She has spearheaded the CTA’s commitment to pour $10 million into venture firms and funds that invest in women, people of color, and other underrepresented entrepreneurs. She built out CES 2020’s inaugural Innovation for All programming and content highlighting the technology sector’s commitment to diversity and diversity’s value in innovation. 

Moore says she views it as a “responsibility, and an honor, to be a visible and engaged leader in the tech industry,” and she has seen her areas of influence at the CTA grow over the past several years, thanks in part, to her deep expertise in trade policy. After serving as director of government relations for the Kellogg Company from 2003 to 2006, Moore was appointed assistant U.S. trade representative for intergovernmental affairs and public liaison by then-U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman. She relied on that experience when she launched her own consulting firm in 2010 and continues to rely on it as she leads the CTA’s advocacy efforts in international trade on the Hill. 

Moore has lobbied against President Trump’s tariffs on Mexico, citing their damaging effects on the technology sector. She has advocated for small businesses that have been hurt by trade disputes with China and is a proponent of a federal privacy standard that would ensure clarity around the use of consumers’ data. 

In her efforts to increase opportunity for ordinary people, she has also reached outside Congress to the larger D.C. community. Through the CTA, she has initiated programs to advance STEM learning and career development at The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington. And as vice chair of the GW Medical Faculty Associates Women’s Health Board, Moore helped raise more than $1.5 million to deliver free breast-cancer screenings on the GW Mammovan.
