The Pain, Power, and Paradox of Bias
Sejal Thakkar • TEDxCWRU
Having lived in a predominantly all-Italian neighborhood while growing up, Sejal Thakkar was no stranger to facing bias on a daily basis. In her talk, Sejal examines the concept of bias through three different viewpoints (pain, paradox, and power) and encourages us to show compassion in the face of adversity by controlling our own biases. As a highly experienced employment law attorney, Sejal’s more than fifteen years of experience advising clients, human resources personnel, and legal counsel regarding sound, standard employment practices uncovered a need - and personal passion - for bringing more proactive, relevant, and impactful workplace training programs to her clients and their teams. Her highly experiential customized workshops tailored to executives, managers, and individual contributors bring the courtroom to the training room in an interactive, engaging environment that favors human stories over compliance checklists.
