Tiara M. Tucker
Born and raised in Kankakee, IL, (South of Chicago) and now residing in Dallas, TX, Tiara M. Tucker, M.S., is known as an empowerment connector who wears many “tiaras.” To name a few, she is a sought-after and award-winning PR and communications strategist, speaker, coach, community advocate, social justice and mental health activist, and the visionary founder of Tiara PR Network, LLC and Speak That! Movement, Inc. In March of 2021, Tiara was featured in Black Enterprise as one of "10 Amazing Black Women Making Moves Right Now." This same year, she was honored as a "40 Under 40" by the Dallas Public Relations Society of America and as a Junior League of Collin County Women of Influence Award nominee.
Tiara has almost two decades of noteworthy experience with a Fortune 50 company, where she specializes in communication strategy, executive-level support, event planning/hosting, corporate responsibility, philanthropy, nonprofit portfolio management, and associate/community engagement. Outside of Corporate America, she has an extensive history working on noteworthy high-profile PR cases, communications and special events. She has been the creator, executive producer, MC, host, moderator, and guest speaker for a variety of platforms over the years -- allowing her to (loudly) speak in front of thousands of diverse audiences.
Tiara’s most notable PR experiences include her efforts in the battle against social justice inequalities and police brutality. She has worked alongside some of the nation’s most well-known civil rights attorneys as their PR and Communications Director, as well as among nationally-known social justice activists. She occasionally is the PR and media coordinator for very high-profile and media-saturated cases, responsible for overseeing local, national and international media relationships. She has been the event chair and PR coordinator for multiple high-caliber events, including a private movie screening and a sold-out fundraising gala held in Dallas in 2019.
In addition to Tiara PR Network, Tiara passionately leads her charitable non-profit organization, Speak That! Movement, which is on a mission to equip and empower professional women in business along their journeys of dream and goal realization. Tiara is also the creator, host and executive producer of Speak That! Talks, which are live virtual events created to empower, uplift and connect audiences via her unscripted and unedited conversations with guest speakers from all over the world. She oversees the Speak That! Movers private VIP group and recently launched her newest social justice initiative, Speak Their Stories.
As a mindfulness enthusiast who has had battles with anxiety while going after her own dreams, Tiara is dedicated to using her voice and platforms to enrich others. To expand her education, since 2019 she has attained a Certificate in Mindfulness; a Certificate in Life Coaching; a Certificate in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace; and aced a Non-profit Leadership and Community Engagement graduate course at Harvard University, where she has been invited to be a guest lecturer.
