Tasha Chambers is a seasoned communications strategist who has worked in the entertainment, tourism, nonprofit and corporate industries. While her professional experience is varied, a consistent theme is the incredible impact her work has had on growing healthy and sustainable communities and amplifying the voices of diverse populations who are historically underrepresented.
With an affinity for developing and executing strategic communications for women and girls initiatives, Tasha has secured placements in top-tier outlets such as CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and HuffPost. She has represented brands such as Capital One, ChildFund International, Girls For A Change, Habitat for Humanity and a host of others.
In 2014, at the height of the Ebola crisis in West Africa, she was instrumental in increasing exposure around ChildFund’s response and post-recovery work. Her efforts resulted in front-page coverage in The New York Times, which helped support the organization’s fundraising efforts for families affected by the epidemic. In the same capacity, Tasha developed highly successful PSA campaigns that were featured in the Wall Street Journal, GQ and Vanity Fair.
In 2015, she assumed the role of museum director at the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia. She positioned the museum to be an interactive, modern institution that preserves and celebrates African and African American art, culture and history and inspires young people to become tomorrow’s leaders. The hyperlocal museum was lauded in The New York Times as the first place tourists should visit while in Richmond, Va. and the museum has become one of Richmond’s most respected cultural destinations.
Tasha earned a B.A. in Journalism from Howard University and is a 2019 Initiatives of Change Narrative Change Collaborative fellow exploring how to improve workplace outcomes for women of color.
