Chuck Shannon’s “two careers” began with twelve years as a division director for the Denver Regional Council of Governments and concluded with 20-plus years in the United Way system. In his last ten years with United Way, he split his time between serving as a Mile High United Way vice-president and as a senior fellow with the United Way of America (United Way Worldwide). In the latter role, he focused on national initiatives for development of low-income communities, serving part-time as a fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and collaborating with the Asset-Based Community Development Institute at Northwestern University.
