Social Omnipreneur | Shalonda Ingram


Inclusion · Dignity · Equity · Accessibility

I am an innovator embodying the mantra:
Strategize. Design. Produce.

People and organizations partner with me to turn ideas into reality, ground their strategy in what become ongoing relationships, and discover how to elevate diverse voices at all levels.

I specialize in elevating community, embedding new economic energies, and delivering long term transformation.

My expertise intersects in:

  • Placemaking
  • Justice Equity Diversity Inclusion (J E D I)
  • Belonging & Inclusion
  • Spiritual Entrepreneurship
  • Digital Platforms
  • Experiential Arts Presentation & Production.


From this perspective, I revitalize hyper-local engagement of underutilized space. Leveraging existing systems and collective practices, we co-create transformational opportunities and foster empowering dialogue.

To date this impact has been acknowledged by a range of entities: AmeriCorp St. Louis, US Chamber of Commerce Youth Entrepreneurship, Alliance for Artists Communities Leadership Institute, the Port of Oakland Community Advisory Board, the New York Innovative Theater Awards, Fierce NYC, Brooklyn Arts Council ReGrant Program and the City of Oakland Cultural Affairs Commission.

I has also accepted nominations by Fronde Baliste founder Rhesa Jenkins for a Pop Tech Innovation Award and The Corporation for National & Community Service Eli Segal Award.

I am nomadic and have established home-bases throughout North America.
