Shirley Moore

AWE Senior Catalyst of Human Empowerment

Optimistic Drive

There are many words one could use to describe Shirley X. Moore: bold, wise, loyal, and resourceful. Let’s add authentic, energetic, outspoken, hilarious, and sanguine to the list. And at the center, is Shirley’s positive optimistic drive that sparks innovative learning that empowers and ignites human potential.

As AWE Senior Catalyst of Human Empowerment, Shirley is a business catalyst supporting the AWE leaders to evolve the humanistic brand of AWE in a way that is inclusive and inspiring. Shirley brings a blend of creative talents to the AWE Team including facilitating both in English and Spanish and developing content that creates greater accessibility and connection.

Engages & Connects

When engaging with clients and facilitating training experiences, Shirley draws from her deep areas of expertise in organizational development, culture, DEI, leadership development, as well as small business entrepreneurship.  She is the founder of Be Moore Interpreting, a RI Certified Minority and Women-Owned Business. Shirley holds a Bachelor’s in Human Services and a Master’s degree in organizational management & leadership. She was the recipient of the Empowered Woman Award in 2021. This exceptional combination of experiences, commitment to excellence, and positivity bring ease to collaborating and working with Shirley.

Born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, where she spent summers, and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, Shirley has built a home in Pawtucket, Rhode Island with her husband Ramel, their spunky son, Jordan, their puppy Myra, and over 70 plant babies. She and Ramel are honored to be the pastors of the Fortified Life Church in Providence. While she loves to work, travel the world, and motivate Latina entrepreneurs, there is no other place she’d rather spend her Sundays than falling asleep on the couch with Jordan by her side.
