Social and Civic Innovation Specialist Tamaya Dennard spends her time sparking civic engagement at Design Impact, a nonprofit design firm focused on social justice and social change issues. It’s no wonder she went from being voted “most likely to change the world” in high school to working as an agent of change, but just how did she make the leap from real estate to politics?
We talk about how she went from stuffing envelopes for a friend to managing PG Sittenfeld's political campaign, why quitting a "good job" to work at City Hall for a MUCH lower salary (thank goodness she had an understanding landlord!) was a pivotal moment, how she leverages the relationships she’s built to make a difference in the community, and why it’s important to create opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to come together.
