Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity has named Shoreé Ingram as its first director of Equity and Inclusion starting November 9.

“I am grateful to join the great team at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and consider it an honor to work toward this important mission,” said Ingram.

“Becoming part of an organization working to dismantle racism and promoting equity and inclusion is a gift in itself,” she continued, “but I am equally looking forward to doing the work that matters—closing gaps in housing, serving and supporting our employees and communities, and ensuring equity and inclusion are core to the Habitat For Humanity experience.”

Ingram will champion Twin Cities Habitat’s anti-racism and equity work. She will serve as a leader and guide in helping the organization live into its value of promoting racial equity, and increasing diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency. Ingram will work directly with president and CEO Chris Coleman and will be a member of the organization’s Senior Leadership Team.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Shoreé to the Habitat team and I know she’ll hit the ground running,” said Coleman, president and CEO of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. “She’s the right leader at the right time to make Twin Cities Habitat a leading voice on racial justice in the Twin Cities.”

Most recently, Ingram served the Hennepin County community as District Court’s first-ever diversity and outreach specialist. She began her career with the courts in 2013 in Education and Organization Development and has led community outreach and education initiatives to advance inclusion and ensure access to justice.

She uses her strengths as a positive, passionate, and people-centered thinker to lead internal training and development for leaders and employees on topics of diversity, inclusion and providing excellent service.
