About Dr. Simran Jeet Singh

Dr. Simran Jeet Singh is an award-winning educator, activist, and scholar who speaks regularly on diversity, equity, and inclusion. He facilitates workshops on these topics for a variety of audiences, from preschools to university campuses, and from local community centers to corporate boardrooms. Simran is also the host of the new show, Becoming Less Racist: Lighting a Path to Anti-Racism, as well as the podcast Spirited, which explores how leaders from marginalized groups think about and navigate justice work. While he is an accomplished professor with graduate degrees from Harvard and Columbia, Simran uses personal stories, dad-jokes, and a love for pop culture to connect with people where they are. That’s because he understands that marginalized groups will not lecture their way into dignity and that empathy is really built when we connect with one another as human beings. Simran is the author of "Fauja Singh Keeps Going," a new national bestselling picture book biography about the oldest person to ever run a marathon. It is the first-ever children’s book from a major publisher – Penguin Random House – to center on a Sikh character. Simran is also writing an adult non-fiction book for Penguin Random House on cultivating empathy and connection in our tumultuous world.
