The Carpentries hired Tara as part of a grant to improve EDI awareness and education across our staff and programs. I worked directly with Tara to streamline our Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Roadmap with our Strategic Plan. Tara is a joy to work with. She communicates timelines and progress very clearly. Our meetings are never boring – she has so much life and love coming across the Zoom screen. It has been a pleasure working with her.”
