Word around town
Head of Strategic Business Development & Innovation, General Assembly
"Sheree is a dynamic force who champions a more inclusive and equitable world through her role at Google and beyond. I was thrilled to have Sheree speak at GA’s International Women’s Day event and the way that she engaged the standing room only room! At GA, she was able to use stories from her personal journey to relate to a diverse audience of women and underrepresented groups and share applicable steps to create a better future."
“In our privileges, we are all continuously hurting each other.” It was the first time I had seen any EDI speaker really break down the fourth wall and engage with their audience as equals. I was doubly amazed because there seems nothing harder, nothing that conjures more defense or stonewalling, than making listeners think critically about their own privilege, and Sheree had somehow done it en masse. It goes without saying, after the Summit, Sheree’s name was heard giddishly exchanged among team and audience members alike. She had stolen the show."

“Sheree has a unique ability to bring about self reflection in regards to very difficult content such as race and diversity. Her words carry such power and she shares her knowledge in such a way that it truly inspires others to want to "do better'. I have always considered myself an ally but have realized how far I have to go. Thank you Sheree for showing me ways that I can do better and teaching me when to stand and when to sit to give space to others"

You just don’t know what that thing is, because you’re not Black...and if you’re honest with yourself, are highly uncomfortable when race is brought up. But your discomfort is not rooted in hatred, rather your fear of offending or hurting someone....
Fight with Us: In Mourning of George Floyd
There are no words that have not already been spoken regarding what is plaguing the black community. Still, we need you to speak up. Beneath the anger of our unheard voices, lies a tormenting, heart wrenching, and paralyzing fear.
Police brutality is the leading cause of death for young black men in America. This is not just a black man’s reality, this reality belongs to us all.
How is your heart? After watching videos of Black people who are discriminated against, abused, and murdered at the hands of people who may look like you or hold the same title as you or someone you love, you might be experiencing guilt or grappling with feelings of shame.
