Anita Shankar

Anita Shankar is a trainer, learner, coach and explorer. Her spark is connecting people with information, perspective and support.  She does this as a RedRUK Associate Trainer through offering “Training of Trainers,” as well as individual coaching of humanitarian workers in the START Coaching Network.

Anita specializes in using popular education to promote social justice, particularly within the fields of public health, trauma healing and youth development. In formal trainings, Anita guides groups to connect, reflect, learn and act. Her coaching style follows a parallel internal process to promote reflection, elicit goals and inspire strategies. 

Anita’s attention to detail is balanced by her ability to examine the big picture.  This allows her to support individuals and organizations to focus on small, immediate steps that generate big, eventual change.
