About Us


CRAWBREN & ASSOCIATES LLC is a consulting firm that uses the principles of “Deep Democracy.”

Unlike "classical" democracy, which focuses on majority rule, Deep Democracy suggests that all voices, states of awareness, and frameworks of reality are important. Deep Democracy also suggests that all the information carried within these voices, levels of awareness, and frameworks is needed to understand the complete process of a system. Deep Democracy is an attitude that focuses on the awareness of voices that are both central and marginal. (Deep Democracy Institute). 

CRAWBREN & ASSOCIATES LLC consulting style is to bring all voices to the table and to design systems which allow everyone to participate in ways that empowers and provide solutions.
