Shannon is the President of the Women's Diversity Initiative of Oklahoma, LLC. Previously, she was founder/CEO of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium and was associated with the group until she resigned in 2020 to focus entirely on the urgent matter of inclusion.

For the past 16 years, her columns have been published in a local business circulation, The Journal Record. These primarily emphasize issues involving business ethics, but she has also emphasized that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential aspects of promoting integrity in the workplace.
