Women Leading Through Change: Tameka Lester

We are living in an unprecedented time of change as we navigate the global crises in health, the economy, equality, and leadership.

Our Women Leading Through Change series highlights powerful voices leading the way across industries and communities. We share tools and strategies for professional and personal growth, and the power of data to elevate individuals, groups, and organizations. This episode features Tameka Lester, assistant Clinical Professor and Associate Director of the Philip C. Cook Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic at Georgia State University.

Tameka earned her juris doctorate from North Carolina Central University School of Law, where she served as Vice President of the Women’s Law Caucus. In 2017, Lester served as the late Congressman John Lewis’ expert witness for “The Taxpayer Experience with the IRS.”

This fireside chat is hosted by Dana McKelvey, Field Event Manager at Tableau. Tameka and Dana discuss:

  • The power of data during economic unknowns
  • The impact on communities most affected by our current crises
  • Strategies for leading through change
  • Overcoming times of unsettledness and anxiety
