TIANNA SHAW-WAKEMAN

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE COORDINATOR

Tianna Shaw-Wakeman serves as a Coordinator for the Environmental Justice program for Black Women for Wellness.

She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and her Master’s degree in Social Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California where she graduated as the first Black Valedictorian for the Class of 2021. Her experience includes interning for the former USC Housing Sustainability Manager, directing the campus environmental activist group ECore, and leading the USC 2019 Climate Strike as the Lead Organizer. She also co-founded DivestSC. USC has since announced that it will divest fully from fossil fuels.

Beyond her activism, Tianna served on the USC Sustainability Steering Committee and the Presidential Working Group for Sustainable Education, Research, and Operations to push for sustainable policies campus-wide. In addition to these achievements, Tianna is proud to be a Sydney Harman Polymathic Fellow, Phi Beta Kappa, a Brittingham Social Enterprise Scholar, and a former member of LA Mayor Garcetti’s Youth Council on Climate Action where she helped create the LA Climate Stories project.

At present, she serves on the Climate Emergency Mobilization Commission for the City of Los Angeles. Tianna values equity and believes in the power of community action – she intends to live a life of service with a focus on environmental justice and wellness.
