About this interview:
Asmaa Guedira works at the intersection of system change, leadership, feminism and regenerative futures. A decade years ago, she left her career as a business consultant in PwC to become a a catalyst wearing multiple hats: facilitator, consultant, artist, writer and designer. A Moroccan nomad with a French passport, she uses the labels she embodies to build bridges with artivists, entrepreneurs and change makers in over 20 countries. Asmaa explores the topics of diversity and inclusion, digital social innovation, and collaborative practices. As a consultant for the non-profit sector, she managed programs in international development related to campaigning, movement building and digital social innovation strategy. Some of her clients were the Womanity Foundation, UN, Hivos, GIZ or MitOst. Asmaa also designs and facilitates transformative learning experiences for leaders & change makers using emotional intelligence, mindfulness, creativity and movement awareness, with tools such as Art of Hosting and Social Presencing Theater (MIT). Her art addresses the colonisation of our bodies and mind, our intimacy, identity and the role of healing. Asmaa is a fellow of the Policy Center for the Global South and BMW Foundation Leaders Program, and is involved in various global networks like OuiShare, Amanitas, Global Innovation Gathering, Sandbox, or African Crossroads. She co-authored 2 books in French: Société Collaborative and Le Manifeste des Crapauds Fous and is currently writing her memoir about identity.
