Beat Your Bias, Question your first impression by Shell's Yassmin Abdel-Magied

Video created by katie.mehnert Champion on Sep 24, 2015

    This is a great TedX talk by a Shell engineer in Australia.  I've had the chance to meet her on Twitter.  I hope you'll enjoy her talk.  It's worth the 14 mins.

     

    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Yassmin Abdel-Magied challenges us to think beyond our unconscious bias and rise up to open doors for those that often can't even make it to the hallway.

     

    At the age of 16, Yassmin Abdel-Magied founded Youth Without Borders, an organisation focused on enabling young people to work together for the implementation of positive change within their communities. Yassmin a 2014 Australian of the Year nominee, 100 Women of Influence Awardee and a myriad of other awards, Yassmin is continuing to be stir action in the Australian landscape.

    About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
