Sharon Harvey Davis (PP)

August 9, 2019

Sharon Harvey Davis, past parent, was profiled in the St. Louis Business Journal on 08.09.19: "Sharon Harvey Davis mentors seven to 10 people at any given time through Ameren’s formal program and informally on her own time, but she’s not just doing it to help her mentees. She considers it a learning experience for herself. 'I learn something new about myself every time I mentor someone, so it’s a win-win for both sides,’' she said. When Davis, 62, joined Ameren as diversity manager in 2002, she was the first African American woman to hold the position. The same was true when she was promoted to diversity director and in 2012 when she became vice president of diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer. 'It takes a village to build a best-in-class diversity and inclusion program, and the dedication of the leadership here at Ameren is something I have not seen in other companies,' she said. 'I’m exceptionally proud of the team I work with here. They really do believe that diversity and inclusion are important drivers for business.'"
