Shannon Schuyler

Chief Purpose and Inclusion Officer,


Access should be a right, not a privilege. We each have a responsibility to leverage our privilege -- and even give it selflessly to others to use -- as we galvanize our work to break down barriers and provide equitable opportunities. We are the change.

Shannon is PwC’s US Chief Purpose & Inclusion Officer - a role that brings together unique insights and perspectives from her prior roles as Chief Purpose Officer and Responsible Business Leader to the Chief Diversity Officer role.

Responsible for furthering diversity, inclusion and equity across the firm’s workforce, she connects purpose with belonging to create an environment in the firm that celebrates identity and intersectionality as a way to drive innovation and business value.

One of the biggest societal challenges Shannon is charged with addressing is the racial injustice burdening diverse communities. Tapping her expertise advancing a diverse workforce and using business to solve societal problems, Shannon works alongside US Chair and Senior Partner Tim Ryan to lead CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion. In this role, she drives the strategy for engaging more than 1,400+ company CEOs, academic institutions and associations.

Shannon has been featured in Fortune, Forbes, WSJ, Working Mother, Huffington Post, and more. She was named a 2019 World Changing Woman in Conscious Business by Conscious Company Media and was included on Fast Company’s list of the 100 Most Creative Business in 2016. Shannon is on the Board of JA Global and MAKERS@ and lives in Chicago with her husband and son.
