Meet TakeyaH Young, MEng, CSM
Described an industrious thinker, I am a personal and professional leadership consultant, and STEM advocate who operates at the intersection of innovation, leadership, and lifestyle.
An engineer and coach by training, project manager and educator in practice, and entrepreneur at heart, I bring together my technical background, project management, technical writing, STEM-influenced program management experience, and data-driven analysis to provide solutions in service of organizational and programmatic sustainability. Essentially, I creatively solve problems (typically using technology) with a little less pain than organizations expect.
I want to live in a world where STEM women, leaders, and innovators live well and prosper. I train corporate and collegiate audiences around personal sustainability, professional development, leadership, diversity and belonging. Through STEM Women Lead coaching and community, I mentor and help Black and Brown women in STEM gain confidence and perspective around success and resilience in career, life, and business.
A very proud graduate of Lincoln University (of PA) and University of Maryland at College Park, I was recognized as a changemaker by the White House Summit on the United States of Women. I was also included in Innov8tiv's Top 100 Women Visionary Leaders to Watch; and selected by Lincoln University as one of their "Top 40 Under 40" Alumni.
When I am not nudging people to take imperfect action in their lives, step up to their gifts, and build business confidence, you can find me rocking colorful vintage dresses, drinking green smoothies, perusing design blogs, rotating my passport, and taking calculated risks…spreadsheets and all.
You can find me online at TakeyahYoung.com or on your favorite social platform @TakeyahYoung.
"Last night, I witnessed you do exactly what I know you have in you. On behalf of the ladies and myself, we were grateful for your presence and WISDOM. I cannot thank you enough for your support and time. I am confident that what you are doing is needed (empowering women) helping them to identify core values and live on purpose."
