We judge people all the time. But can our judgement be dangerous? In this funny and inspirational talk, Zamina Mithani explores the nuances of the subconscious biases through her own story. From rapping Muslims to homeless citizens she urges everyone to go beyond stereotypes and towards harnessing the power in diverse perspectives. People who don’t look like us – who don’t think like us — are actually the key to our growth. Ultimately, the solution to a world where people are categorized into “kinds” is to start being kind.
Zamina Mithani is a Shia Muslim from Vancouver, is seeking kindness revolutions and diversity solutions. She is passionate about interfaith harmony, and helping leaders “judge their judgement” in order to move beyond a world of labels and towards a world of love. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
