Kent Denver is delighted to welcome Shareena Mundodi as our Director of Equity and Community Engagement starting in July 2022. She currently serves as Director of Community Life at Charlotte Preparatory School in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Ms. Mundodi was selected following a national search led by Storbeck Search.
"After interviewing numerous candidates it became clear that Shareena offers a unique skill set unmatched by the other candidates," Head of School Rand Harrington said. "We are thrilled that she will be able to continue with the excellent work that [current director] Jason Mundy has accomplished and move us even further along the path to creating a truly inclusive community."
Ms. Mundodi is well-equipped to lead Kent Denver’s DEI and community engagement efforts. In her current role at Charlotte Preparatory School, she has developed and implemented policies, procedures and programs to sustain a culturally competent, inclusive school community. She helped the school complete an institutional cultural climate assessment and is leading the development of a five-year DEI strategic plan, while providing valuable support to the entire school community as they met the challenges of finding common ground during the COVID pandemic.
Ms. Mundodi also brings a wealth of international experience and multicultural awareness to Kent Denver. She has lived and worked in Bangalore, India; Santiago, Chile; Campinas, Brazil; and Nanjing and Shanghai, China, where she held positions in public affairs, communications, editing, and program development. Shareena was a presenter at TEDx in Nanjing and served as a volunteer and consultant for Nanjing International School and Shanghai Community International School.
Welcome, Shareena, to the Kent Denver School community!
