#14LCS Facilitator Series: Meet Tanya Tarr

banner_final.preview.jpg

If you register for NTEN’s first-ever Leading Change Summit this September (#14LCS), you’ll be asked to choose one of three tracks—Digital Strategy, The Future of Technology, or Impact Leadership—and you’ll spend quite a bit of time with your track-mates at the Summit.

That’s why we’re doing our best to recruit a remarkable group of facilitators to help shape your experience. Each track will have two Lead Facilitators and several additional Facilitators who will design spaces and lead small group conversations to make sure that every participant has the chance to both learn and share.

Tanya is Director of Legislative & Political Mobilization at Texas American Federation of Teachers. She has also worked as a political analyst and a data manager and is a veteran of local, state, and federal electoral campaigns. In 2009, Tanya received a Rising Star award from Campaigns and Elections’ Politics Magazine, recognizing people under 35 years old who have made a significant mark in political consulting or advocacy.

In our conversations with Tanya, it has been clear that she is not only committed to creating spaces for inclusive and productive conversations, but also to sparking a sense of joy and optimism at the Summit.

If you register for #14LCS and opt for this track, you’ll join Tanya, Tracy Kronzak, and their crackerjack team of facilitators to reflect deeply about how the future of technology will impact your organizational focus and hiring, staffing, and community engagement plans, as well as how it will change the way you think of innovation, solution-finding, and change management.

You can follow Tanya on Twitter at @nerdette.
