Annahid is a master Agent of Change. She spent her early career years organizing national political campaigns and moved into the slower and deeper work of shifting consciousness. With a foot in the inner realm of psychology and the other in the outer realm of systems change, Annahid weaves both together in a compelling approach that is uniquely crafted to each client organization she works with. She has worked and consulted in the Public sector for more than 25 years spanning different levels of government, healthcare, non-profits and education. As an immigrant, as a woman of colour, and as an empath, her passion is to create cultures where everyone knows that they matter and belong. She is a published author, speaker and media spokesperson.
