Anjali’s lectures often deal with questions around innovation and diversity. As an “idea acupuncturist”, Anjali brings a spiritual approach to the business world. She doesn’t give black or white answers to businesses or problems, she looks at a set of issues and works on pressure points using unique interventions to help keep the energy flowing into an idea or business. Anjali has been featured as a keynote speaker at TEDX, Seattle Interactive Conference, The Connecticut Forum, and Diane von Furstenberg’s International Women’s Day Speaker Series. She has participated in fireside chats with Danny Meyer (Union Square Hospitality Forum), Ezra Klein (Washington Post), and Neil Blumenthal (Co-CEO/Founder of Warby Parker).

Her “beautiful inspiring, and funny” talk My Failed Mission To Find God - And What I Found Instead, based on her book Stalking God: My Unorthodox Search For Something To Believe In, has been watched by over 2 million people from around the world and translated into over a dozen languages.

Anjali is focused on redirecting the conversation around diversity and gender equality in the workplace by embracing ideas of non-absolutism. Her talks stop framing diversity in business from a moral obligation to start thinking about diversity as an untapped and proven means for businesses to increase creativity, jumpstart innovation, and produce higher revenues.

Anjali’s work in social innovation has been featured in Inc., Forbes, and the New York Times. Her book has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar India and Vanity Fair.

Anjali earned her BA in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University and a JD from Boston University School of Law.
