And we are going to be unpacking her latest and greatest book The Waymakers: Clearing the Path to Workplace Equity with Competence and Confidence.
Which in my opinion Is a MUST READ for all workplace leaders today.
Tara is an equity strategist, speaker, C-Suite advisor, and the President and CEO of TJF Career Modeling LLC — where she partners with executives to create learning experiences that advance critical culture and leadership goals.
She is also the author of The Waymakers: Clearing the Path to Workplace Equity with Competence and Confidence.
Prior to charting her course as an entrepreneur, Tara was a corporate executive at one of the most beloved consumer brands in the world, Hallmark Cards, Inc.
Tara actually began her 20+ year career at Hallmark as a greeting card writer, where her gift as a powerful wordsmith and storyteller inspired many people during special and celebrated life moments.
However, Tara’s growth and trajectory at Hallmark was limitless, and also history making.
During her tenure, Tara advanced to become the youngest person in Hallmark’s history to be promoted into executive management…
And also the company’s very first African-American female vice president.
But after a mid-career pivot and wonderful life-changing event, Tara’s current “post-Hallmark” career has definitely been filled with meaning, purpose, and massive impact.
And as a passionate voice and champion for inclusion, Tara truly cherishes the power of community.
When she’s not giving candid and transparent advice on fee negotiation and pay equity to underrepresented speakers…
Tara is always on brand — delivering timeless value across a variety of subjects to her audience.
That is being fabulous and phenomenal over 40.
