Innovation Ohio Continues to Expand with New Digital Department

COLUMBUS — Today, Innovation Ohio (IO), Ohio’s leading progressive politics and policy advocacy organization, continued to expand its capacity by announcing the hiring of two additional staff members who will operate IO’s digital department.

Tanya Salyers will serve as Digital Communications and Engagement Manager for the organization. Mimi Solomon joins IO as Digital Associate.

“We’re thrilled that Tanya and Mimi have joined our growing team at such a pivotal moment for the future of Ohio,” said Desiree Tims, President and CEO of Innovation Ohio.

“The district lines drawn this year will shape Ohio’s policies for at least the next decade. We must also fight back as Ohio’s Republican supermajority repeatedly attacks our freedoms. IO’s new digital team will ensure our message reaches every Ohioan.”

Tanya Salyers most recently managed communications for The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio. She also serves as a Board Member for New Leaders Council Columbus, and for Zora’s House — a safe space for women of color to thrive. A proud Korean-Appalachian, Tanya is a transplant from Portsmouth, Ohio, who has made Columbus home for the last 15 years. She is a graduate of Shawnee State University.

“This is a crucial moment for progressives in Ohio as we fight for fair districts and fair representation. Mobilizing Ohioans to action will be key to holding our lawmakers accountable and building the future we deserve. It is critical that we meet people where they are in the digital space,” said Salyers.

Mimi Solomon holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and strategic communications from The Ohio State University, and a master’s degree in business administration from Ohio Dominican University. Mimi has a visual merchandising background in corporate retail. She previously created digital and social media content as a Marketing Specialist in the medical field.

“During this critical time in our state, we are bringing more awareness and accountability as we work for equal districts. I am happy to be a part of the movement, create change, and organize digitally with Innovation Ohio,” said Solomon.
