About Tara

Tara Martinez (she/her) is a writer, social justice advocate, and coach who has spent the past 10+ years honing her communications skills in both for-profit and non-profit spaces. Professionally, she uses a combination of writing, storytelling, and coaching to facilitate learning, growth, and creativity. Personally, she's a pop culture nerd. In all things, she is guided by a strong and steady internal compass that forges her path ahead with integrity, thoughtfulness, and care.

Tara holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Stony Brook University and a certificate in Organizational Development through the University of Minnesota. In 2021, she was selected to participate in the second cohort of The Equity Lab’s Nexus Fellowship, which builds leaders’ capacity to design and implement race equity, diversity, and inclusion (REDI) initiatives within their organizations.

In 2022, Tara pursued a coaching certification through the Academy of Creative Coaching, an ICF accredited coach training program (ACTP), with a focus on cultural humility and inclusion coaching.

In December 2022, Tara was officially accepted into NASA’s database of IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility) practitioners. Those invited to participate sit on panels that review Inclusion Plans submitted with scientific proposals, ensuring that NASA-funded activities align with their IDEA goals.

Tara is passionate about pursuing opportunities to do meaningful work that fosters social change. To date, she has helped organizations and individuals working to create equity in education, social services, climate change, and filmmaking and oral history archiving.



"Tara has been coaching me through some career transitions and she has been very helpful. Tara has a kind and level demeanor and is very easy to talk with. She is a great listener and helped me uncover some roadblocks and fears that were preventing me from moving forward. I cannot recommend her enough for one-to-one and group coaching."
