Deepening our comfort
with uncomfortable topics to work toward
equity and social justice

Hello, I’m Dr. Anu. I’m a speaker, facilitator, consultant, author and educator specializing in issues of diversity, racial equity and social change.

I believe in pushing the conversation — without pushing folks away.


My latest book, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World, was named one of Fodor’s Travels “13 Books to Inspire Your Travels," selected as one of Oprah Magazine's "26 Best Travel Books," and featured in YES!, AFAR, National Geographic and Bitch magazines.

By sharing engaging personal travel stories and thought-provoking questions about identity, race, and difference, "Beyond Guilt Trips" gives us the tools to better understand the uncomfortable feelings about who we are, where we come from, and how much we have. 

This is a book meant to be read and discussed with friends, classmates and colleagues. Beyond Guilt Trips is being used as a school and college textbook, book club selection, and Staff Reads pick around the country.
