Daisha Mshaka (she/her) is a diversity, equity, and inclusion professional and career consultant. She began her career working in youth serving nonprofits, with a focus on social justice. While working with youth entering the job market, she identified a gap in approachable career consulting services for historically marginalized women, POC and LGBTQ+ folks. In 2014, she launched Daisha M. Career Consulting to provide career coaching and strategy for young professionals. In 2016, she pivoted to work in a “core” HR function in a healthcare setting, before deciding to focus on DEI work and program management full time. She currently works as the Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategist for Google’s Staffing organization.
Daisha earned a BA in Economics from Mills College, pursued an MS in Human Resource Management at USC, and is currently completing an Advanced Diversity & Inclusion certificate at Cornell University. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated and a lover of all things food, music, and travel (pre-pandemic of course).
