As a sought-after equity consultant, speaker, and leadership experience designer, Tara Jaye Frank helps organizations define a vision and develop strategies to accelerate their culture and leadership goals.
Before founding TJF Career Modeling LLC, Tara spent 21 years at Hallmark Cards, Inc., where she was the company’s first Black female vice president, and at the time of her promotion to executive management, the youngest person to rise into senior leadership in Hallmark’s history.
Today, Tara works closely with Fortune 500 companies across consumer goods, retail, technology, finance, aerospace, defense, sports and media industries, as well as member organizations like Network of Executive Women and The Executive Leadership Council to customize talent solutions and facilitate equity-based learning experiences through conferences, intensive leadership programs, workshops, panels, and keynote addresses.
In 2015, Tara published her first book titled Say Yes: A Woman’s Guide to Advancing Her Professional Purpose - a practical tool to help emerging leaders reach their own professional high grounds. She is also the visionary behind #MoreThan: A Movement, a non-profit founded to facilitate deeper understanding between disconnected people. Her second book, The Waymakers: Forging a Path to an Equitable Workplace, is set for publication in 2021.
Tara lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband John, four of their six children, and their three dogs.
