Public Speaking


Tahitia Timmons, MSN, CDP®, CDE®, (certified diversity professional and executive) and is a national speaker on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). She is also an advocate, coaching professional, nurse, content creator and the mother of two amazing people. Tahitia grew up in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious household, in Paterson, NJ, an urban area in the US. Growing up, the impact of poverty and lack of resources made her keenly aware of how health and wellness affect our lives. Professional and personal experiences also have taught her that bias is real and dangerous when not addressed, especially in healthcare. She is committed to making a difference in the area of DEI because of this. She identifies as a Black, queer, autistic, cis woman who uses she/her/hers pronouns. In 2023 she decided to launch a podcast dedicated to telling stories about people working on health equity issues, including everyday folks tackling big challenges.

Company bio

Conscious By Us's goal is to create safer spaces for ideas focused on diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice by examining how authenticity, stereotypes, perfectionism, and imposter syndrome impact our health and well-being. Conscious by Us seeks to highlight positivity by including works from divergent thinkers and health equity advocates. We believe that mental and physical health, healthcare access, along with overall wellness are core components of DEI work. We accomplish this through our website's free forum and our podcast 52 Weeks of Health Equity, along with volunteer work with organizations aligned with our vision. Conscious By Us helps organizations discuss disparities and frame DEI outcomes in the context of health and wellness through interactive speaking engagements and coaching services.
