Meet the BKLA leadership team
For us, it’s all about empowering the people of our Brooklyn community with the tools and confidence to find their purpose, make the changes they need, and improve their lives.
After executive roles at iconic media and advocacy brands like GLAAD, Real Simple, and People , Tamara is now president of BKLA and COO of its owner, Legacy Growth Partners, a community- and values-driven business development and investment company. Famous for giving advice on how, as a minority, to be heard and have a voice, Tamara is also known for a few not-so-secret talents: organizing, decorating, and throwing events people never stop talking about.
As captain of the ship, she sets the course for BKLA’s renovation and rebranding, with an aim to grow membership, programming, sponsorship, joint ventures, revenue, and community impact.
