Neha Mathew-Shah is President of Progressive Workers Union (PWU) and currently employed with the Sierra Club as an International Environmental Justice Representative. As a non-profit employee for over seven years, Neha has experienced the power of working with a union to build a powerful, equitable and inclusive environment both inside and outside the workspace. At Sierra Club, this change has been driven by two unions that represent the two-thirds of the organizations employees, PWU and Sierra Employee Alliance (SEA).
