Meet Tatiana Maida
Share Collaborative DEI Consultant and Facilitator on Cultural Humility, Trauma + Resilience, and Team Wellness
Born and raised in Bolivia, Tatiana’s commitment to working for and with those impacted by inequities and racism began in her native country. After moving to the United States in 2002, she has evolved in her areas of impact; from journalism, education, advocacy, and consulting; always with her personal mission at heart: to mobilize change towards equity, racial justice, and human growth.
Tatiana has close to 15 year of leadership, management and consulting experience in public health and equity, advocating for systems and policy change, and the inclusion of community voice in the decision-making process.
Since 2015, Tatiana has worked as an independent consultant on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). In 2019 she joined Share Collaborative’s team, where she provides cultural humility/reverence, trauma informed care, and wellness trainings as well DEI consulting to local and national organizations and institutions.
In addition, in January 2022, she joined the University of Wisconsin Madison as the Community Partnerships Lead for healthTIDE, a network of statewide and place-based multi-sector partners who work together to create policy, system, and environmental changes related to healthy eating and physical activity in Wisconsin.
Prior to this, Tatiana worked for over a decade with Sixteenth Community Health Centers (SSCHC), one of the largest Federally Qualified Health Centers in Wisconsin. During this time, she developed and managed the Obesity Department with a focus on comprehensive family education and community leadership development to increase access to healthy food and safe physical activity. This innovative model that involved partnering with resident leaders to assess the issues, prioritize solutions and develop community-driven programming, has impacted the health and lives of thousands of adults and children in southside of Milwaukee and beyond. In recognition for this work, in 2015, Tatiana received the Go Red por tu Corazon Ambassador Award from the American Heart Association.
Ms. Maida has served on several Boards and Councils such as the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee, Bike Pedestrian Task Force of City of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Food Council. In 2019, Governor Tony Evers appointed her to serve in the Wisconsin Public Health Council in Madison, where she is a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion of community voice in the public policy.
Tatiana’s main areas of expertise are strategic thinking, community leadership and advocacy, program and curriculum development, communications, assessment and evaluation, facilitation, capacity building, mentorship and cultural humility.
Tatiana has a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a minor in Community Development.
