Special Projects, Inclusion & Diversity

Giant Eagle

Jeremy Shapira manages Giant Eagle’s Inclusion and Diversity strategy. He grew up in Pittsburgh and went to college in Philadelphia to study art history.  During a 10-year stint in New York City, he worked in the theatrical design, advertising and non-profit fields.  Ten years ago he moved back to Pittsburgh to be with his family and work at Giant Eagle.  He has had various responsibilities since then including leading the HR strategy for the Company’s Market District and GetGo brands as well as leading talent acquisition and customer service. 

Building on Giant Eagle’s 40-year history of employing people who are differently abled, Jeremy leads the Company’s differently abled inclusion strategy.  Currently, he is focused on supporting and expanding the “embedded specialist” project in each of the Company’s major markets and leading its Abilities Business Resource Group.  Additionally, he is testing a job-carving strategy for people with more significant challenges at GetGo as well as ways to employ more people who are differently abled in Giant Eagle’s distribution centers.

Jeremy serves on the board of Achieva, Pittsburgh’s largest differently abled services organization as well as Squirrel Hill Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center serving Pittsburgh’s immigrant and refugee populations.  Additionally, Jeremy leads Giant Eagle’s United Way campaign, raising nearly two million dollars every year for the Pittsburgh community.
