Anat Shenker-Osorio is a communications expert, researcher and political pundit whose one-of-a-kind work is challenging the way dozens of organizations and political figures talk about the pressing issues of our time. She’s the author of the acclaimed book “Don’t Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy.”
As a strategic communications consultant, she has conducted multiple studies on how people reason about refugees and people seeking asylum, climate change, education, economic justice, immigrants and women’s rights. Past and present clients that have relied on her research to diagnose what’s not working in their messaging and to provide fresh new approaches include: the Ford Foundation, America’s Voice, Jobs with Justice, Ms Foundation, Open Society Foundations, the Centre for Australian Progress, Congressional Progressive Caucus, Caring Across Generations and the AFL-CIO, to name a few.
Never short on humor and always packing some snark, Anat communicates her insights with the kind of practical communications savvy rarely available in academic circles. Everyone from broadcast bookers to conference audiences marvel at her unexpected insights and reframing of tired policy debates.
Anat’s writing and research has appeared in The Atlantic, Huffington Post, Salon, the Christian Science Monitor, among other publications.
