Carol Tonge Mack is the Founder & CEO of Tonge Mack Enterprises, LLC: Empowering Next Dimension Leaders. The organization has three primary goals: provide women and girls with the empowering tools necessary to elevate and amplify their voices, particularly, but not exclusively in education; assist companies and organizations with innovative, unconventional, leadership skills to unleash their highest potential; and help students and parents navigate higher education from recruitment to graduation.
Carol is a well-respected educator and powerhouse behind her brand: END POLITE SILENCE™. She has been working for over twenty years in higher education with professional skills ranging from executive strategic planning, project implementation, and execution, to crisis management with emotional intelligence at the core. Among her colleagues, she is known as a fierce promoter and supporter of staff development with expertise in building trust and strengthening teams which is crucial to the success of every organization.

She is the author of her memoir, Being Bernadette: From Polite Silence to Finding the Black Girl Magic Within, and an empowerment guide, 10 Commandments for Women.
