Jamila Conley, President of the TAF Board of Directors
We are excited to introduce Jamila Conley, President of the TAF Board of Directors!
“I joined TAF’s board because I am passionate about being a part of the solution for introducing more kids of color to STEM.”
Jamila is the Vice President at F5 Networks on the Corporate Strategy team, leading the Business Transformation Office which encompasses M&A integrations and strategic business transformation activities. She has championed many foundational and innovative projects by guiding and nurturing a wide variety of cross-functional teams and is a business process and analysis professional with a strong passion for furthering diversity and inclusion in the technology sector.
Her commitment to increasing representation and equity in STEM fields is evident in both her personal and professional life. For example, Jamila sponsors the F5 Appreciates Blackness inclusion group furthering diversity, inclusion, and equity for black and underrepresented minorities within the company while fostering key partnerships with non-profit organizations to help build the opportunity and talent pipeline for kids of color interested in STEM. Additionally, she has also served on a D&I advisory board for a company based in Atlanta, GA, and has been a guest speaker for several forums and panels addressing D&I topics including why inclusion matters from a business perspective, allyship and interrupting microaggressions, and helping women find their voice, among many others.
Jamila is a Leadership Tomorrow alum (class of 2016), holds a CPA license, CISA certification, and has an MBA in MIS. She brings a wealth of experience to the table, having previously, worked in consulting, telecommunications, and public accounting.
Jamila has served on TAF’s board for four years and is excited to help enable TAF to build stronger corporate partnerships that will ultimately allow TAF to scale its programs to serve more students, teachers, and education leaders of color. We are thrilled to have her support and leadership.
