Being Brown in a Black & White World

Attention Leaders!

Wherever you are at—if this is your first foray into Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) and your first conversation about “race” or if you’re already wading through these and live them every day—welcome.

What you can expect …

“To effect change that creates a lasting impact, you need someone brave enough to lead the way. Annemarie Shrouder offers a road map for leaders by fearlessly weaving together elements of her personal stories of being brown in a black and white world. She draws you in, capturing the essence of what it feels like to be left out or included, and the transformation that ensues along the way. This book is a must-read for leaders who seek to shift the culture of their organization or community thus making a bigger positive difference on the planet.”

Lisa Marie Platske, Leadership Expert, International #1 Best Selling Author, and Contributor

“In a world fraught with divisive lines drawn in the torrent sands of racism, reading “Being Brown in A Black and White World” was a welcomed tide of memories, wisdom, and positive steps for change. This book is a must read for any leader and helped to usher in a refreshing perspective on race, racism and belonging. Bravo!”

- AdéX- Writer & Visual Artist

“While Being Brown in a Black and White World is not intended solely for corporate audiences, she master- fully makes the content relevant. Shrouder invites the reader to consider critical questions after each chapter, challenging us to move from an exclusionary either/or mindset to an inclusive both/and reality.”

- Rodney S. Patterson, author of Trumping the Race Card, a national agenda for moving beyond race and racism

“Racism is a leadership conversation. Leadership is a choice. It is a responsibility we all share. It’s time to do the hard, uncomfortable work to break down systemic racism in our communities and, most definitely, within our organizations. This book is a great place to begin.”

- Candy Barone, leadership development trainer, coach and speaker
