Theodore Miller, Esq., Co-Principal, Equity & Results

Adrienne Gemheart

For the last two decades, Theo Miller has advised and led businesses, universities, hospitals, and elected officials across the country to redesign policy, create new models of collaboration, and achieve dramatically better results for low-income communities of color. Theo is the co-principal of Equity & Results, a nationally recognized consultancy firm that specializes in supporting high-capacity organizations to accelerate anti-racist impact through innovative and new forms of data use, cross-sector partnerships, and strategy design.

A sough-after public voice on race, social justice, and community development, Theo previously served the last three mayors in San Francisco as the director of HOPE SF, where he led the most consequential transformation of public housing and neighborhood redevelopment in the City’s history. While a public servant, he managed a $2.5 billion redevelopment commitment where he partnered with resident, community, and philanthropic leaders to transform more than 3,000 units of affordable housing, design and implement reparative housing policies, and shift the City’s public sector resources to explicitly focus on longstanding underserved families, particularly African Americans and Pacific Islanders.

A graduate of Yale University and of Harvard Law School, Theo previously managed community benefits for the SF Public Utilities Commission, was a corporate attorney at the firm Davis Polk & Wardwell, a commercial broker and real estate developer, and a Fellow at the Hutchins Institute at Harvard University. He has served on the Board of Directors of the San Francisco Bar Association, and lives in Oakland and San Francisco, California where he raises his two young daughters.
