We are thrilled that Surabhi Lal will be one of our speakers at the SEEMA SUMMIT, on Sunday March 8 in New York City. The event gives center stage to influential South Asian women for remarks and panel discussions of their professional and personal experiences. We also will announce exclusive findings from SEEMA about how cultural expectations impact the lives of South Asian women.

She is deeply passionate about the future of work, equity in the workplace, and creating cultures where individuals and teams thrive.

She is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, sits on the board of the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation and is a Gallup-Certified CliftonStrengths Coach.

She is passionate about developing talent, cultivating good management, and creating cultures where individuals and teams thrive. As a skilled career coach and Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach she has a natural ability to see someone’s unique talents and motivations in people and knows that a career impacts many facets of one’s life. She gets great joy from making the unwritten rules of a job search and work more explicit to create equity and guiding others on their journey to career success.
