Tammy Tucker was appointed as the city's first Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in November of 2022. 

Ms. Tucker holds a Master’s of Education as an Administrative Specialist and a Bachelor’s in English Literature, both from Central State University. She has previously served at The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Cuyahoga Community College, and Central State University.

In her previous work as the Director of Diversity and Inclusion for The Ohio State University’s College of Medicine, she was instrumental in impacting student support, having crucial conversations, facilitating implicit bias mitigation and upstanding/bystander training to undergraduate and graduate medical school learners. Her work ensured that every incoming learner completed Implicit Bias Mitigation Training and could complete the Diversity Council's DEI Certificate. Before that position, Tammy was the Director of TRIO Student Support Services at Ohio University where she focused on students who identified as first generation, limited income, or with a disability, empowering them to obtain their bachelor’s degrees. At Cuyahoga Community College and Central State University she also served in TRIO, ensuring high school students were exposed to college rigor, ACT preparation, and college admissions through the Upward Bound Program.

In addition to education, Ms. Tucker has a long civil service history of working for Welfare reform with Jobs and Family Services in Franklin and Cuyahoga Counties, prison reentry within Cuyahoga County, workforce investment with the City of Cleveland, and racial reconciliation in the Episcopal Church.

Ms. Tucker is also the mother of three adult daughters and is an avid writer and published poet. She enjoys playing tennis, reading, and cooking for family and church functions.
