I Am As You Choose to See Me | Farah Yasmine Shakir | TEDxIESEBarcelona.

Farah’s story is powerful to say the least. She draws from her multicultural background to describe how the smallest of actions, whether of kindness or prejudice, can be powerful in shaping the way we deal with people we work and interact with.

Farah Yasmine Shakir is of Pakistani-Canadian origin and after graduating from Queen’s University in Canada with a Master of Industrial Relations, she established a career last working as the Head of HR Strategy for one of the largest financial institutions in Pakistan. She is currently completing her PhD in Management from IESE Business School in Barcelona, in the department of Managing People in Organizations. Her main focus is considering management practices that reconcile cultural differences.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/…/tedx-program
