The Lexington Forum Presents

Isabel Taylor on “International Lexington”

Languages spoken in Fayette County Public Schools have grown from 27 in 2005 to 92 as of the spring semester of 2014. Citywide, more than 100 languages fill the air in an increasingly cosmopolitan Lexington. The Lexington Forum has invited Isabel Taylor, the city’s Multicultural Affairs Coordinator, to tell us about the complexities, challenges and opportunities of an “International Lexington.”



Isabel received an JD from the University of Texas, with courses at Vrije Universitiet, Brussels, Belgium in a Masters Program in International Law, and an L.L.M. in International Business Law from the University of London- London School of Economics & Queen Mary College. Practiced law as international counsel for Gulf Oil Corporation based in Houston, TX then continued in private international practice in Austin, TX. On retiring from the practice of law, moved to Lexington, KY where she is the Multicultural Affairs Coordinator for the Lexington Fayette Government. Ms Taylor works to identify the service needs of foreign-born citizens, residents & visitors and to eradicate the barriers to their ability to live and work here. This includes Title VI compliance regarding national origin discrimination. Ms Taylor maintains a data base on international communities and monitors state and national legislation pertaining to the immigrant, refugee, and international business sectors. She acts as liaison in support of educational and multicultural events, gives cross-cultural communication presentations and participates in university and non-profit organizations’ boards, advisory councils, task forces, and commissions on behalf of LFUCG involving diversity, human rights, human trafficking, international education, and race relations. She is a native Spanish and recovering French speaker.
