YWCA Greater Charleston has welcomed Shamara White as its training and logistics coordinator.
In this newly created position, White manages the behind-the-scenes details that make YWCA Greater Charleston’s gender and racial equity programs hum.
“Happily, our programs and events have grown to such an extent that a new role really became necessary,” said LaVanda Brown, executive director of the nonprofit. “We brought Shamara on board to help us keep them at the level of excellence Charleston has come to expect and desesrve from us. Her extensive background in training, development, and computer systems, paired with her passion for the empowerment of women and elimination of racism, make her a perfect fit. We are very pleased to add her to our team.”
White, who holds a bachelor’s degree in business with a certificate in human resources from the University of Phoenix, studied diversity and inclusion, learning theory and motivation, training program design and delivery, and more.
Prior to joining YWCA Greater Charleston, she handled onboarding training and development and customer advocacy for outpatient surgical network Surgical Management Systems, served as a member of diversity and inclusion teams in customer service roles at both Verizon and AT&T, and provided customer care and technical support at Time Warner Cable and US Cellular.
In addition to her contributions to YWCA Greater Charleston, White is a volunteer mentor for Built By Girls College, a volunteer at Crescent Hospice Center, and a member of the Palmetto Society for Human Resource Management. She is also founder and coordinator of Chuck-Town Girls in Motion.
