The Southern Poverty Law Center has appointed Tia Gordon chief communications officer.
From her DC perch, she will oversee strategy and design for the organization’s earned media, editorial, digital/social media and creative departments.
Previously, she served as chief of communications and advocacy for UN Women and as VP of global communications at Catalyst, a nonprofit that works with CEOs and companies to build workplaces that are well-suited for women.
Gordon is also the founder of TTG+PARTNERS, a communications consultancy focused on the challenges faced by college students who come from marginalized and underserved communities.
In her new post, she will oversee strategy and design for the organization’s earned media, editorial, digital/social media and creative departments.
“Tia was a natural choice for the SPLC given her proven leadership in championing justice, equity, diversity and inclusion,” said SPLC president and CEO Margaret Huang.
Based in Montgomery, the SPLC works to fight racial injustice in the South and beyond and dismantle White supremacy.
