Bianca Tylek
Director

 

Bianca is the Director of the Corrections Accountability Project. She combines her expertise in both criminal justice and financial services to combat the commercial exploitation of the criminal legal system.

Previously, Bianca was a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice, where she researched the perverse financial incentives created by current approaches to corrections funding.

Prior to her fellowship, Bianca worked with various state and local corrections agencies. Most notably, in New York City, she drafted the young adult plan that eliminated solitary confinement for prisoners 21 years old and younger—a first for the nation. And in Pennsylvania, Bianca evaluated innovative performance-based contracts in community corrections. 

Additionally, Bianca has consulted to the Association of State Correctional Administrators as a writer and data

analyst and worked for the Campaign to End Mass Incarceration at the American Civil Liberties Union. In 2013, she also co-founded College Pathways at Rikers Island, a preparation program for incarcerated students interested in pursuing higher education upon release. 

In a past life, Bianca worked in financial services. Between 2010 and 2012, she was an investment banking analyst at Citigroup, and, between 2008 and 2010, she was an investment management analyst at Morgan Stanley. 

Bianca is also an Equal Justice Works Fellow sponsored by Ropes & Gray. In the past, she has been a Harvard University Presidential Public Service Fellow, Ford Foundation Public Interest Fellow, Paul & Daisy Soros New American Fellow, and an Education Pioneers Analyst Fellow. Bianca holds a B.A. from Columbia University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
