The Pain, Power, and Paradox of Bias

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.

She refused to allow ignorance, insensitivity, and the bullying conduct of others to impact her inner “ninja”.

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.

Sejal Thakkar is the founder and Chief Civility Officer of TrainXtra.  As Sejal grew up in a suburb of Chicago, Sejal fought hatred and discrimination on a regular basis. She refused to allow ignorance, insensitivity, and the bullying conduct of others to impact her inner “ninja”. Armed with the knowledge she gained from these experiences, Sejal teaches that harassment will not stop on its own – it’s up to all of us to be part of the fight to stop workplace harassment. We cannot be complacent bystanders and expect our workplace cultures to change by themselves. Sejal passionately transforms the workplace and education settings into places of civility by empowering others to be a part of the solution. Her goal is to empower each employee to create a positive workplace environment!

    The above quote from your post, which I shared on Twitter, is sheer bravery and comprehensive understanding, Sejal.

    In a recent post that I write on BIZCATALYST is on The Lurking Strengths behind Weaknesses I mentioned that people who withstand such biases and arrogance gain the strength and get the skill needed to guide others.
