Meet the Team
Annemarie Shrouder, Founder & Principle
I lovingly call myself “the can opener”. Raising awareness is what I do best. What I love most about this work are the ah-hah moments that change how we see the world forever. I use my teaching background, and my experiences as a biracial, queer woman to focus on strategically creating cultures of learning in business that build awareness and understanding, and a willingness to engage in uncomfortable conversations – resulting in environments where people thrive. And I don’t do this work alone.
I am honoured to work alongside these gifted, courageous and talented individuals…the ASI team.
