If you want the kind of speaker who drops AHA moments and changes lives…

“I came away hopeful that we can make significant progress toward inclusivity. Her workshop was an a-ha experience that confirmed my inner hopes and highest values. It provided me with a heightened clarity on this complex subject—a transformative tool that will prove invaluable both in my personal and professional life. Thank you, Dr. Anita, you are a person that is and will always be a life changer!”

…moves attendees to tears, touches hearts, and creates unforgettable moments…

“I didn't want the day to get away without telling you how much your presentation (Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging: A Primer) touched a couple of attendees, including me. One of my dear friends who attended told me she could have listened to you talk for another hour. Another dear friend of mine was so moved by your personal stories, as you could see, that she couldn't hold back the tears. 


What a wonderful gift you gave all of us from a different perspective, unlike what's seen every day in the media. You brought it home in a way that touched our hearts and we won't soon forget. Thank you.”

…delivers a workshop so engaging, you forget about your other plans (and other speakers)…

"I invited Dr. Anita to facilitate a workshop for my leadership team that was the kickoff for a new series. Within the first 10 minutes of observing her, I knew I had chosen the right facilitator.

After my opening remarks, I intended to stay for a short time. But I was so impressed that I rescheduled another meeting and stayed for 75% of the session.

I mentioned that Dr. Anita kicked off a new leadership series for my team and after the group had experienced another facilitator, they overwhelmingly said, ‘Please bring Dr. Anita back!’ And I was happy to do so."

…and shares practical takeaways attendees can implement immediately…

“What our team loved most about working with Dr. Anita were her practical tools, real-world activities, and an atmosphere of engagement. The experiential learning was so impactful that people were immediately able to make connections back to situations they had experienced prior to the workshop and leave with strategies to implement the very next day.”
