Shertease Wheeler

Director of Corporate DEI Projects and Research

As a child growing up in a predominately Black and underserved community, and later being exposed to environments that were equitably serviced, I gained insight into community differences due to racial and social injustices. This experience ignited a passion to learn and contribute to building equity and inclusion in my community. My experiences have taught me the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion work in not only corporate environments, but in every facet of society.”
