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 serv​ice of organizational and programmatic sustainability. Essentially, I creatively solve problems (typically using technology) with a little less pain than orga​nizations expect.

I wan​t​ to live in a world where STEM women, leaders, and innovators live well and prosper. I train corporate and collegiate audiences around personal sustai​nability, professional development, leadership, diversity and belonging. Through STEM Women Lead coaching and community, I mentor and help B​lack and Brown women in STEM gain confidence and perspective around success and resilience in career, life, and business.

A ver​y​ proud graduate of Lincoln University (of PA) and University of Maryland at College Park, I was recognized as a changemaker by the White House Summ​it 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 m​e 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 or on your favorite social platform @Take​yahYoung.

"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."
