What does it mean to work towards justice, inclusion, belonging and equal rights in this time where these topics are more and more polarizing? Instead of being guided by clear analysis and data, equity efforts are increasingly being determined by whose opinion is loudest.  Many of us are overwhelmed and exhausted in addition to having our own skin in the game, and unsure how best to proceed.  This session is a reminder and a reset of why it’s especially important in times such as these to stay connected to purpose and reclaim our joy.  Come and refuel with us.

Annahid Dashtgard

Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder, Anima Leadership

As a seasoned change-maker and non-fiction author, Annahid gets juiced by figuring out what makes people and systems tick, and how to move them from survive to thrive. Over the last two decades she has worked with hundreds of organizations and leaders to create more just and equitable futures. She’s a first generation immigrant woman of colour whose inaugural book—Breaking the Ocean: A Memoir of Race, Rebellion and Reconciliation— honestly and vulnerably documents her journey identifying and healing from racial trauma. Her latest book Bones of Belonging: Finding Wholeness in a White World (order here) is a set of poignant, humorous and timely stories translating everyday racism to ordinary life.
Annahid has a Masters in Adult Education and has trained in various psychological modalities (Process work, Somatic Experiencing trauma training, mindfulness and Chinese medicine) to understand the root of systems change in human consciousness. Besides consulting, educating, coaching and writing on JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) issues for over two decades across both public and private sectors, she has carefully cultivated her love of reading, usually on the couch with a glass of wine in hand trying to tune out the voices of her little ones.
