Tiffany Blassingame is my good friend and colleague, and a contributor to my book on emotional labor.
She’s also a thought-leader, education, school administrator, mom to a high scholar and athlete, and all around decent human being. As a productivity expert and professional organizer, Tiffany founded the National Association of Black Professional Organizers.
Tiffany is a nationally recognized expert on the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and spoke about, among other things, how emotional labor shows up in households of color. She adds to the narrative of this body work work and definition when she asks, “what parts of me are being put aside, in order to shoulder the weight of emotional labor.
Tiffany started Simple Organization to provide organizing and productivity strategies to help others develop a more organized approach to home, work, and school. As a divorced parent of a teenage son and a school administrator, she understands the delicate balance between raising children, progressing toward personal goals, working in your career, and being a good steward to others and to yourself. It sometimes feels impossible to keep it all together!
Tiffany is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) as well as a founding member of the National Association of Black Professional Organizers (NABPO) where she serves as the Director of Inclusion and Belonging. She is also a professional organizer with Ebony & Orderly, a collaboration of 6 Black professional organizers in Atlanta. She speaks frequently on the topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice on various platforms. Tiffany is also the Founding Head of School of The Ferguson School, a progressive Christian school in Decatur, GA.
