Anita Budhraja

I’m an organization development consultant who runs rapid strategic planning, facilitates creative online meetings, and manages remote teams for social change organizations, making them stronger than before the pandemic. I bring 15 years of leadership in nonprofit and private sector organizations, along with 8 years living and breathing cooperation in residential intentional communities. I work toward diversity, equity, and inclusion in every strategic plan, team meeting, and conversation I lead.

I believe we can make online meetings better than in-person. As executive director of a 100% remote nonprofit organization, I learned on-the-job how to communicate, build trust, resolve conflict, brainstorm, make decisions, and get things done online. My online facilitation superpowers are fostering personal connection, engaging participants in “hands-on” activities, and leveraging technology to make big decisions quickly.

I teach Effective Online Facilitation, and I am trained in Organizational Development, Racial Equity, Rethinking Anti-Racism, Nonviolent Communication, Conflict Resolution, and Transformative Mediation. I hold dual degrees in mechanical engineering and sustainable energy engineering from Northwestern University. I currently work from home in New York City.
