Anastasia (Stacy) Sdanowich

I am a sole practitioner (Mediator) since June, 2017. Previously I was a Senior Staff Mediator with the EEOC for over 20 years. Currently, I am a sub-contractor for the Department of Interior to conduct mediation/facilitation, as well as a roster Mediator for the Colorado Dept. of Special Education. My main style is facilitative, but I go where the parties lead me and am flexible in switching styles.

I am a trained Mediator who has been practicing for over 25 years in the area of employment law, discrimination, and workplace disputes both in the private and public sectors.

I am a long-standing Professional Member of the Association of Conflict (ACR) and TheMAC. Recently I joined the Colorado Bar Association’s ADR Section and LERA. In addition, I provide pro bono mediation services for the Colorado Federal Executive Board’s ADR CADRE.

ADR Experience

I am a seasoned Mediator with over 25 years of experience. While a Senior Investigator at the EEOC I negotiated settlement agreements in employment discrimination cases. I am constantly updating my skills by attending webinars and online training sessions, in addition to in-person seminars when available.


My main style is facilitative, however, I can switch or incorporate other styles when necessary. It is important to address the needs of the parties and to be flexible.


Over 200 hours of conflict resolution training.
