Leadership

 

Tasha Chambers is an award-winning communications professional with proven success advocating for and empowering emerging domestic and global communities. For more than 13 years, she has created innovative programming and communications campaigns for diverse brands. She is a passionate speaker on gender & equality issues, openly sharing her experience navigating through corporate and nonprofit environments. 

Tasha created The InnovateHers in response to the lack of senior-level opportunities in communications and advertising for people of color, especially women. The InnovateHers boasts a team of women leaders (and a few good men) who are the brightest, baddest and boldest communicators authentically representing and partnering with marginalized and emerging communities. 

She is a 2016 Top 40 Under 40 honoree, a super proud graduate of Howard University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Together, she and her husband have three very different and unique children.
