Shana believes education is one of our most powerful tools for creating a just and sustainable future – and is dedicating her young activist life to doing just that. Shana joined Bioneers in 2010 as Education Program Manager to spearhead the organization’s first formal Education for Action program. Just prior to joining Bioneers, Shana earned a Master’s degree in Communication Management from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, where she was actively involved as a leader of numerous campus organizations and initiatives as both an undergraduate and graduate student.
Her work at USC largely focused on grassroots community organizing to mobilize students, administrators and local politicians around environmental and social issues. Through her role with Bioneers, Shana is now working to drive much larger-scale transformations in formal education, supporting the transition towards an education system that adequately prepares young people to take ownership of and leadership in creating the just and sustainable future we all want to see.
