Meanwhile, Shaw is also on the Board of Directors of the National Black Public Relations Society and the Georgia Diversity Council and was named among the 2017 Atlanta Business Chronicle 40 Under 40 Awards honoree
Reacting to her new role, Shaw said she is “thrilled to join such an iconic brand as Starbucks to leverage the power of Inclusion “one cup, one person, one community at a time!”
Shaw, an experienced executive with extensive hands-on experience and knowledge of diversity & inclusion, change, talent acquisition, organizational planning, employee relations, branding, and community engagement said her daughter is her inspiration.
“She is the light of my life, she makes me think about all of the possibilities for the future. She gives me hope that the world can be a better place than it was when I was growing up. She’s in a very multi-cultural school that is not segregated and I see so much hope for equity and for equality looking through the lens of her eyes. So, she inspires me to continue to do this work because I know that I can hopefully shape and change a generation,” Shaw said.
