Andrea G. Tatum

Sr. Director, Corporate Equity Engagement at Catalyst Inc

“Throughout her career, Andrea has been focused on helping companies create inclusive cultures where everyone belongs. Andrea joined Catalyst in June 2020 as the Sr. Director of Corporate Engagement, Western Region. In this role, Andrea provides guidance to a portfolio of companies headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and Western Region of the US on how to create inclusive and equitable workplaces that work for women. She is also a part of our Speakers Bureau and brings her unique experiences alongside Catalyst’s deep research on topics such as Emotional Tax on People of Color.

Andrea’s passion and advocacy for Diversity and Inclusion was ignited early in her career in non-profit arts marketing. She was named one of Rolling Out Magazine’s Most Influential Women in Atlanta for her initiatives around cultivating diverse audiences. After 10 years in the arts, Andrea pivoted to tech where she grew her career as a product marketer, a certified project manager, and international event planner. Prior to joining Catalyst, she was with Tableau Software where she oversaw a portfolio of the company’s events and was the team lead for Diversity & Inclusion at their annual 20000 person user conference. Andrea then became Tableau’s Sr. Manager of Inclusion where she scaled the company’s DEI strategies around recruiting, engagement, and training.

Andrea graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Advertising/Public Relations and holds a CAPM from the Project Management Institute.”
