MyKhanh Shelton, SVP of Equity and Inclusion at WarnerMedia, joins Jerry to share her story of her belief in using media to help bring equity and inclusion to elevate Asian American and other marginalized communities. Listen today to learn about her career path from law, inclusion strategist, to media executive who's using her platform to amplify and uplift all of us.
Meet MyKhanh in her own words:
I design and implement evidence-based initiatives to make companies more diverse and culturally competent.
My 20+ years of experience as a lawyer and inclusion strategist give me the unique background and ability to develop safe and equitable work cultures that drive business productivity, innovation, creativity, and profitability.
I place a premium on analytics, counseling, and training to achieve business results. I work to uncover root causes as a means to devise data-driven solutions that produce institutional change.
As Senior Vice President, 21st Century Fox Global Inclusion, I worked with senior executives to conceptualize and drive strategic initiatives to increase diversity and foster inclusion in corporate and tv/film production environments. I led a dedicated team to launch first-of-its-kind initiatives, including Inclusion Week (uniting colleagues around the world in conversation with innovators, artists and academics to draw out, examine and enhance inclusive attitudes and behaviors); the Fox DP (Cinematographers) Lab; and the Filmmakers Lab.
Prior to that, as Senior Vice President, Employment Law, I was trusted and acknowledged for consistently finding win-win solutions in contentious circumstances, building consensus, accruing buy-in for change initiatives and working through competing interests. I transformed mandatory harassment training into solutions-oriented, engaging opportunities to inspire and equip employees to create safe and inclusive workplaces, resulting in increased productivity and decreased legal risks.
I’m passionate about eliminating barriers for people from underrepresented groups and am proud to sit on the board of Facing History and Ourselves, an international non-profit that engages students in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry.
