I’m Shehreen Johnson and I am very excited to be a part of this amazing board. I look forward to mobilizing our community in the pursuit of a Fab planet and I’m excited to learn more in the process. I was born in Bangladesh and moved to the States when I was four. I returned for a visit one summer and was immediately struck by the beauty and sadness- beauty of the people and surroundings, and sadness for the same. The wealth inequity was alarming and a shock to my eleven year old self. Up until that point, I assumed everyone had food and shelter. The experience taught me the significance of waste and instilled a strong sense of justice. Those principles guide me to this day by motivating me to do what I can to lessen my footprint, heal the planet and improve livelihoods.
Serendipitously, I obtained a BSE in Industrial & Systems Design Engineering and years later, an MBA in Sustainable Business. My background and experience is mostly in the corporate sector doing strategic business planning and operations management. I believe in the power of business to drive positive social change. My personal passions are around economic empowerment & inclusion and sustainable livelihood development.
I currently live in Seattle and when it’s not raining, you can find me on the lake paddle boarding, rowing or motoring a tiny boat.
