Signature Keynote Program:
The Light We Give
Growing up in South Texas, Simran Jeet Singh and his brothers confronted racism daily. As a turbaned, bearded, brown-skinned Sikh, he continued to face prejudice and hate in college and beyond. Simran chose to be defined not by the negativity that often surrounded him but by the Sikh teachings of love and justice that he grew up with. Delving deep into these core tenets of Sikh wisdom, he has sought to embrace an outlook that guides us to see the good in everyone and to forge a path of positivity, connection, and service—a way of life that so many of us are seeking in today’s world.
In his signature keynote program, Simran lays out how we can learn to integrate ethical living with personal happiness.
Helping people reach beyond their comfort zones and limits to practice this deeper form of living.
Exploring how everyone can learn the insights and skills that have led him to find a crucial balance.
Offering ways to commit to activism without becoming consumed by rage, self-pity, or burnout.
Simran is represented by Penguin Random House Speakers Bureau and delivers dynamic content on diversity, equity, inclusion, empathy, justice, and anti-racism. For booking information, contact Hayley Shear – email@example.com.
Praise for Simran
“Simran is so effective because his work centers on empathy and humility. His approach isn’t one of prescribed answers, but rather engagement centered on deep listening with the objective to truly learn from the experience of others.”
“I have been so inspired by his unwavering and empathetic approach to anti-racist work. He shares stories that help open one’s eyes to another’s perspective; he helps us care. Simran not only impressed the audience but inspired people to action. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone working to create a more inclusive and equitable culture.”
“He held space for our group to dig deeper into the power of gratitude to maintain perspective, and to ‘find the silver lining’ even when hope feels lost. Participants were deeply moved, felt they learned practical and nuanced personal skills and were motivated to continue to ‘do the work.’We count ourselves fortunate to have met and worked with Prof. Singh.”
