“The Power of Deserving" with speaker Dr. Tameka Ellington

A power of deserving has everything to do with a woman's feeling of worthiness. As women we are brought up to believe that our voice doesn’t matter and that our work is not as important. In order to dismantle those beliefs, we must find the strength within ourselves to rise up against impostor syndrome, low self-confidence, and misogyny to develop a self-affirmed worthiness that exudes nothing but excellence at every turn.

Dr. Tameka obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion from KSU, a Master of Arts in Apparel and Textile Design from Michigan State University, and a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction from KSU. Dr. Tameka is CEO and Founder of Dr. Tameka Ellington Enterprises, a personal and professional development company. She is a speaker, internationally acclaimed and awarded fashion scholar, and confidence coach. She’s the author of four books, including the award-winning book, TEXTURES: the history and art of Black hair written for its namesake exhibition co-curated by Dr. Tameka, featuring artifacts and contemporary artworks musing on Black hair and Black culture. Her fifth book, Black Hair in a White World was released summer 2023 with Kent State University (KSU) Press. Dr. Tameka is also the host of the Black Beauty Activist Podcast where she has critical conversations with her guests to disrupt Westernize beauty standards and raise the consciousness and confidence of Black women.  While working in the academy, she served as Assistant Dean for the College of the Arts and Director for Diversity Initiatives for a team of over 3,000 people (faculty, staff, and students). Dr. Tameka is dedicated to empowering her clients to achieve new levels of self-confidence, and helping them break down cultural barriers in their personal and professional lives. Her motto is ,“On the other side of fear is your beautiful confidence.”
